BioMérieux GeneUp

BioMérieux has announced the launch of a PCR-based molecular diagnostic system for customers in the agri-food sector enabling the detection of microorganisms. Called Gene Up, the platform was co-developed with its BioFire Defense business and has an expanding menu that now includes commonly tested pathogens in the food chain, such as Salmonella, Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Listeria. The open platform is also suited to run tests manufactured by CEERAM, a company acquired by BioMérieux in December of 2014, for viruses, including norovirus and hepatitis A virus.

Suicidal Ideation-Linked Loci Identified Using Million Veteran Program Data

Researchers in PLOS Genetics identify risk variants within and across ancestry groups with a genome-wide association study involving veterans with or without a history of suicidal ideation.

Algorithm Teases Out Genetic Ancestry in Individuals at Biobank Scale

Researchers develop an algorithm known as Rye to tease apart ancestry fractions in admixed individuals at a biobank-scale, applying it to 488,221 UK Biobank participants in Nucleic Acids Research.

Multi-Ancestry Analysis Highlights Comparable Common Variants at Complex Trait-Linked Loci

Researchers in Nature Genetics examine common variants implicated in more than three dozen conditions, estimating genetic effect similarities across ancestry tracts in admixed individuals.

Sick Newborns Selected for WGS With Automated Pipeline

Researchers successfully prioritized infants with potential Mendelian conditions for whole-genome sequencing or rapid whole-genome sequencing, as they report in Genome Medicine.
