secondary findings

The company, a division of cardiology clinic Spera Medical, is offering WGS with annual clinical reports as part of a long-term research study.

An ACMG workgroup has added four new genes, removed one gene, and said it would open up the nomination process to the broader community and consider PGx genes.

The University of Washington researchers intend to license the tool, called My46, to other academic and nonprofit research organizations free of charge.

The findings, published last week, have prompted Belgian medical genetics centers to routinely report maternal incidental findings from NIPT.

Researchers found that reporting an incidental genetic finding doesn't cause patients extra anxiety and may lead to positive changes if the disease is actionable. 

The study, focused on two genes associated with cardiac disorders, found that patient phenotypes did not correlate with the presence or absence of a pathogenic variant.

Wolf and colleagues recently published a series of articles that included recommendations on how and when to share genomic data with research subjects' relatives.

The statement touches on issues such as the reporting of secondary findings, adult-onset conditions, incest, and non-paternity results.

When researchers find information relating to preventable or treatable life-threatening disease, 98 percent of the respondents said they wanted to be informed.

A group of 10 so-called PediSeeker volunteers from the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia interpreted secondary variants in PediSeq exomes.
