Baylor College of Medicine has launched a Computational and Integrative Biomedical Research Center.

The Thomas Jefferson University researchers will use the grant to study how certain genomic repetitions may be involved in diseases.

In Nature, researchers describe the high-throughput approach that they have used to make conditional knockouts of more than 9,000 genes in mouse embryonic stem cells.

Berg Bio and GNS Healthcare created MAP Bioystems to "unlock the key molecular drivers of complex diseases and drug efficacy and safety."

Using a new phylogenomic method known as the "analyzer of gene and species trees," or AnGST method, researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Broad Institute have gained insights into a period of gene expansion that occurred billions of years ago.

The alliance includes a $12 million equity investment from Bayer CropScience in Evogene.

Researchers from the University of Toronto and elsewhere reported today that they have used RNA features in dozens of mouse tissues to develop a code for predicting tissue-specific alternative splicing patterns.

The institute, which is part of the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, is in the process of completing a $205 million, 300,000-square-foot facility within the UW-Madison campus. An official said that systems biology and computational biology will play key roles.

Pfizer will fund the drug target studies and will hold options for milestones and licensing.

The Israel-based computational genomics platform developer and agricultural genomics firm reported a $2.1 million profit.


23andMe has launched a new tool that estimates someone's risk of developing severe COVID-19 if infected, Bloomberg reports.

The Guardian reports that Pasteur Institute researchers are halting their development of a SARS-CoV-2 vaccine following disappointing initial results.

The Wall Street Journal reports that an increased number of younger patients have been hospitalized as the new SARS-CoV-2 strain spread across the UK.
