The proteomic study, which built on past findings that HER2-negative tumors generate HER2-positive cells after treatment, suggests a role for combination therapy.

Proponents believe the Million European Genomes Alliance will spur research, stimulate the life sciences economy, and ultimately improve clinical care.

The company hopes to leverage NxGen's assets and relationships in the maternal-fetal medicine space to aid commercialization of its proteomic preterm birth test.

Using genome sequence data from almost 65,000 individuals, researchers identified 39.2 million SNPs that can be applied to improved genotyping imputation.

The method works by adding noise to database search results to confound algorithms that try to access private details about contributing individuals.
