Researchers used brain expression data from mice with well-documented sleep traits to identify gene networks that overlap with those in human depression.
The technique features sequencing-by-ligation and error-correction strategies, and was used to simultaneously map more than 1,000 genes in mouse brain tissue.
The German Federal Joint Committee (G-BA) plans to decide on reimbursement of breast cancer biomarker tests in Q4.
The approach, published this week in Cell Reports, could be used more generally to discover disease genes in other cancer types.
The researchers designed a transcriptome sequencing assay that identifies clinically relevant gene fusions in 541 genes.
The Tel Aviv University researchers still noted some gene expression differences between lung epithelial cells infected with flu and bystander cells.
In a new analysis of the trial, researchers concluded that women over the age of 50 with recurrence scores below 25 appear to see no added benefit from adjuvant chemo.
The genetic risk of schizophrenia is influenced by early-life complications and the placenta differentially expresses these complication-linked genes, a new study says.
The company hopes to replicate its early data in future studies, making a case that better early diagnosis can improve outcomes for patients with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
Three microRNA that were significantly upregulated in plaques may serve as targets to affect cardiovascular disease development, according to a new study.
In PLOS this week: Mycobacterium abscessus linked to gastric conditions, placental gene expression changes associated with preterm birth, and more.
The Guardian reports that UK universities are looking into ways to reduce labs' reliance on single-use plastics.
People with certain gene variants tend to not like vegetables, particularly bitter ones, CNN reports.
