Researchers in the US and Europe are implementing pathogen sequencing surveillance programs to track infectious diseases within hospitals.

Researchers saw changes in gut microbial community membership as populations moved from foraging to short-term or long-term agriculture.

The researchers hope the datasets from their study can help to explain the effects of disease-associated variants on specific cell types of the immune system.

The approach, called cfMeDIP-seq, could distinguish early-stage pancreatic cancer from healthy controls and differentiate several types of cancer.

Researchers will use Adaptive's immune repertoire sequencing technology to look for a molecular signature of type 1 diabetes.

Consulting company McKinsey says diagnostics companies will have to combine genomic data analysis, electronic medical records, effective reimbursement strategies, and regulatory compliance in order to win.

A new report has found that researchers in Africa are still heavily dependent on funding from organizations in the US, Europe, and China, Nature News says.

An article in The Atlantic argues that the progress being made in science isn't keeping pace with the money and time being spent on research.
