In PLOS this week: computational strategy for improving gene set analysis testing, miRNAs linked to sleep apnea, and more.

The company, established as a merger between A*STAR MedTech spin-off MiRXES and venture capital firm Venturecraft, has developed a blood test for early-stage stomach cancer.

Researchers have demonstrated that they can detect more miRNAs, as well as other small RNA molecules, by sequencing these samples rather than using microarrays.

The company hopes to launch its first clinical cancer test within the next year, after spending the last several years conducting validation studies.

The company hopes to develop saliva-based RNA assays for concussion, Parkinson's disease and autism using biomarkers discovered by its two academic partners.

The researchers developed a qPCR test that analyzes microRNAs associated with ovarian cancer and plan to run a retrospective trial of the assay on biobanked samples.

Using multiple samples from more than 60,000 individuals at a participating hospital, the firm tracks circulating molecules over time in relation to cancer.

Researchers in the US and Ukraine built a microRNA-based classifier to categorize infants as affected or unaffected.

Researchers from Northwestern University uncovered five circulating microRNAs that differentiate patients with very high- and low-risk prostate cancer.
