This webinar provides a practical approach to using reference standards to define the performance characteristics of new next-generation sequencing assays during validation.

In this webinar, Robyn Sussman and Ashkan Bigdeli from the Center for Personalized Diagnostics at the University of Pennsylvania discuss how they used reference standards as part of the validation workflow for their NGS assays.

In one case, they used standards with varying degrees of damage to validate a low-input assay that can accommodate highly compromised formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded tissues.

NPR reports that researchers in Italy are testing a gene drive aimed at controlling mosquito populations.

Researchers may experience the effects of the government shutdown for a while, the Los Angeles Times reports.

A new study finds that the majority of patients at a Tijuana clinic received a diagnosis after first-line genome sequencing, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

In Genome Biology this week: post-transcriptional modification-based stratification of glioblastoma, single-cell analysis of gene expression and methylation in human iPSCs, and more.
