The institute announced ECRIgene this June, and is now offering it to paying subscribers from the clinical, regulatory, reimbursement, and test development spheres.

PNRI researchers will be able to analyze information from over 600,000 discrete tumor, blood, and urine samples from around 25,000 patients.

The grant from St. Baldrick's Foundation will be used to support UCSC's genomics and informatics Treehouse Childhood Cancer Initiative.

Responding to initial criticism of the draft guidelines on NGS testing, Mansfield emphasized that the documents are not final and assured that the agency will continue to listen to stakeholders.

The updated repository includes 265 drugs, 1,074 cell lines, as well as associated whole-exome sequencing and gene expression data among other datasets.

The agency has outlined a process for recognizing public genetic variant databases, but industry players say the field lacks incentives to advance such resources. 

FDA's David Litwack said at the Festival of Genomics that the agency will soon release a draft document laying out a regulatory proposal for public comment.

Under the terms of the agreement, licensed BaseSpace Correlation Engine users will have access to data and visualization tools from Pathway Studio.

Recent numbers from the PMKB website show that the repository currently contains 144 genes, 458 variant descriptions, and 286 clinical interpretations.

The portal offers access to genotype, phenotype, and clinical data related to type 2 diabetes as well as computational tools for querying the information.
