Since 2015, the Regeneron Genetics Center has sequenced 250,000 exomes from phenotyped individuals, identifying "human knockouts" and other large-effect mutations.

The partners will use the GuardantOMNI assay, a 500-plus-gene liquid biopsy panel designed to accelerate clinical trials and targeted cancer therapy research.

The workgroup wanted to address the problem of variability in how bioinformatics pipelines are validated in order to improve the accuracy of NGS tests.

Panel-based sequencing also led to a change in diagnosis for 10 patients in the Yonsei University team's cohort.

The US Food and Drug Administration has new guidelines that enable some gene and cell therapies to undergo expedited review, according to the New York Times.

Using gene drives to control invasive species might be too risky, an initial advocate of the approach says.

In Science this week: intellectual property experts argue patent battles such as the one over CRISPR are wasteful, and more.

Researchers have grown tumors in 3D cell cultures to better understand cancer, the Economist reports.
