biomarker discovery

The new multinational consortium, backed by the EU and Canada, seeks to improve understanding of immune responses and uncover new therapeutic targets.

Researchers identified 20 genes with enhanced or muted expression in blood samples from dengue virus cases that progress to hemorrhagic fever or shock syndrome.

The new, multinational iReceptor Plus Consortium will develop a platform for sharing of AIRR-seq data to advance immunotherapy and precision medicine.

Gene expression data revealed two groups of human papillomavirus (HPV)-positive oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinomas corresponding to distinct survival outcomes.

An array-based analysis involving more than two dozen patients led to a miRNA signature associated with overall survival in primary central nervous system lymphoma.

A multi-omic analysis implicated a handful of transcription factors, along with genes and regulatory RNAs down- and upstream of them, in metastatic colorectal cancer.

British genomics interpretation software vendor Congenica will help researchers analyze WGS and WES in search of a genetic cause for sudden unexpected death in epilepsy.

KMPJM will provide diagnostic and prognostic testing services based on genes, proteins, and other molecules to aid physicians in assessing and treating patients.

Results from a small study suggest that blood biomarkers could be used to test for acute sleep loss and related problems such as drowsy driving.

With their strategic partnership, the bioinformatics firms seek to "break the biomarker bottleneck" that is holding back the potential of multi-omics research.
