This webinar discusses a proximity ligation-based method for studying structural variation in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue.

FFPE tissue produces highly fragmented, low-molecular weight nucleic acids, presenting a principal challenge to identifying relevant genetic variants with tumor sequencing. This sub-optimal input specimen was previously not thought to contain long-range (Mbp+) information needed to accurately and robustly identify balanced and unbalanced large-scale structural variation and phasing from these specimens.

The New York Times and ProPublica say that many physicians fail to disclose their financial ties when publishing in medical journals.

The Wall Street Journal reports Human Longevity's valuation has dropped by 80 percent.

Science reports that the US National Cancer Institute is cutting its operating budget by 5 percent.

In PLOS this week: similar variants seen in bullbogs, people with Robinow syndrome; ApoE genotypes in African-American, Puerto Rican populations; and more.
