biobanking

Combining questionnaire-derived phenotyping with hospital diagnoses increases the power to tease out genetic associations within biobank data.

The NIGMS repository holds and distributes over 11,700 unique cell lines, as well as more than 6,300 DNA samples, representing over 1,000 heritable diseases.

The Komen Tissue Bank will use LifeOmic's Precision Health Cloud platform for genomic, clinical, and imaging data aggregation and analysis, among other things.

Fresh off its first major fundraise, the startup DTC biobanking company is preparing to launch a new service under the GoodCell Diagnostics brand name.

Using the free service, called Fingenious, researchers will be able to access genomic data generated by the country's FinnGen project, which aims to genotype 500,000 Finns by 2023.

Led by investigators at the University of Oslo, the four-year CoMorMent project is slated to commence next month with a total budget of €6 million.

The company will use the funding to market its GoodCell Diagnostics service, which combines genetic testing and personally controlled biobanking.

The group is mailing pharmacogenetic information back to patients, with plans to deliver genetic disease risk and carrier screening results.

The personalized medicine company hopes to use the new array to inform new consumer and clinical tests, while also making it available to others for research.

The EU will fund the effort through 2026, but the Cypriot government will contribute an additional €15 million over the next 15 years.
