Researchers have identified promising polygenic risk scores for estimating overall breast cancer risk as well as estrogen receptor-positive forms of disease.
Researchers identified germline and somatic changes that marked low-grade and high-grade cases in adults and children with a condition called neurofibromatosis 1.
DNA sequence data from 416 neuroblastoma cases led to informative alterations affecting genes from telomere maintenance, RAS, or TP53 pathways.
Using DNA sequence, gene expression, methylation, and drug response data, researchers saw alterations linked to ovarian cancer subtypes and drug responses.
Researchers investigated the possibility of picking up intra-tumor genetic heterogeneity in tumor exomes, identifying false-positives and technical noise.
An analysis of matched tumor-normal samples from dozens of colorectal cancer patients pointed to microbiome differences related to mutations and other tumor features.
Members of the Beat AML consortium uncovered relationships between somatic mutations, gene expression profiles, and sensitivity to more than 100 drugs.
Mayo Clinic researchers found that cytogenetic subtypes containing three translocations were more common in individuals with a greater proportion of African ancestry.
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's technology is based on set of patient-cell derived gene signatures for classifying four pancreatic subtypes.
Researchers found that the diverse features in mixed phenotype acute leukemia may stem from early blood progenitor mutations.
The American Prospect writes that the pilot program to test the DNA of migrants could lead to more family separations.
An international commission is to develop a report on how researchers, clinicians, and regulators should evaluate the clinical applications of human germline genome editing.
The US Department of Agriculture presents a new blueprint for animal genomic research.
