Under the terms of the agreement, Repositive will offer access to a range of biomedical science research datasets from GigaScience.
The availability of consumer genomics services has also made it possible for adoptees to bypass state adoption laws, many of which restrict access to their records.
The database currently includes 60 oncogenes with variants associated with therapies and clinical trials, or that have been functionally characterized.
The graph-based tools will allow researchers to query large datasets and identify defining patterns of variation across cancer types and subtypes.
Twelve hospitals will use the company's assays to screen vulnerable patients for genes from multi-drug resistant organisms.
The company is developing a search application that will allow users to explore genomic datasets without accessing sensitive information.
CiViC provides a communal forum for capturing and sharing written summaries, drawn from published literature, about the clinical relevance of mutations found in cancer.
The firm plans to launch several products based on its proprietary machine learning method for identifying variants that alter cellular biochemistry and cause disease.
The method combines post-translational modification data and 3D protein structure data to identify known and novel biologically significant hotspots.
The partners will continue to develop an integrated sequence and knowledge database to support Pierre Fabre's therapeutic antibody development efforts.
A new paper says an effort to introduce gene drives into mosquitos altered the genetic makeup of the local mosquitos, but the company behind the project says the paper is flawed.
Researchers examine changes in the genomes of emmer wheat populations where the climate has warmed, the BBC reports.
Virginia's Department of Forensic Science is offering attorneys a course on DNA testing, the Virginian-Pilot reports.
