Welcome to the first issue of Clinical Sequencing News — a new GenomeWeb newsletter focused on clinical and diagnostic applications of next-generation sequencing.

Clinical Sequencing News is produced by the editors of GenomeWeb's In Sequence, which has been the go-to source for news on the rapidly evolving sequencing market since 2007. This new publication will deliver the same comprehensive, in-depth reporting that readers have come to expect from In Sequence, but with a particular focus on the nascent clinical sequencing sector.

Myotonic Dystrophy Repeat Detected in Family Genome Sequencing Analysis

While sequencing individuals from a multi-generation family, researchers identified a myotonic dystrophy type 2-related short tandem repeat in the European Journal of Human Genetics.

TB Resistance Insights Gleaned From Genome Sequence, Antimicrobial Response Assays

Researchers in PLOS Biology explore M. tuberculosis resistance with a combination of sequencing and assays looking at the minimum inhibitory concentrations of 13 drugs.

Mendelian Disease Genes Prioritized Using Tissue-Specific Expression Clues

Mendelian gene candidates could be flagged for further functional analyses based on tissue-specific transcriptome and proteome profiles, a new Journal of Human Genetics paper says.

Single-Cell Sequencing Points to Embryo Mosaicism

Mosaicism may affect preimplantation genetic tests for aneuploidy, a single-cell sequencing-based analysis of almost three dozen embryos in PLOS Genetics finds.
