In Genome Research this week: sex-biased gene expression evolution in malaria mosquitos, method to find ancient selective sweeps, and more.

The software, developed by researchers at the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research, uses machine learning methods to classify mutations as germline or somatic.

Participants tried to classify samples based on the epigenomic impact of cigarette smoke cessation and aerosol from modified- or reduced-risk products.

The computational method, called DeepCpG, is designed to tease out missing epigenetic marks and related DNA motifs in single-cell DNA methylation data.

Codexis has been using its CodeEvolver platform to engineer high-performance enzymes for next-generation sequencing and PCR for in vitro diagnostics.

Objectives for this year include building a network of ELIXIR beacons, developing new features and security measures, and partnering with data owners.

As part of the deal, scientists from Philips' Intellispace Genomics development team will relocate to NYMC's biotechnology incubator in Westchester County.

The newly minted company offers panel, whole-genome and whole exome sequencing, as well as bioinformatics analysis and reporting services to oncologists.
