In blood samples from infected individuals, a seven-gene signature apparently distinguishes between bacterial and viral culprits, a distinction important to antibiotic use.

A five-gene signature was linked to both event-free survival and overall survival in individuals with a type of rhabdomyosarcoma missing a prognostically informative gene fusion.

The approach combines barcoding of individual mRNA molecules from single cells with next-generation sequencing.

DermTech announced this week that it has raised $5.6 million in a Series B financing round, which it will use to commercialize its melanoma detection test using Life Technologies' OpenArray quantitative real-time PCR system and to establish a CLIA-certified lab facility in which

Takeda will be the exclusive distributor in Japan for WaferGen's SmartChip System to researchers conducting gene expression studies.

The University of Nevada’s School of Medicine will use a March of Dimes grant to study gene expression in a variant that could be used to develop a screening test for preterm birth.

The scientists, who published their results in Nature Methods this month, determined that the bias is "largely independent of the sequencing platform" but is instead "strongly determined" by the method used for preparing the small RNA library.

In Science this week: genetic target for urothelial bladder cancer treatment, and more.

At the Conversation, the University of Oxford's Michael Macklay writes that learning genetic risk of disease is a personal decision.

Two dozen scientific organizations have endorsed the March for Science, according to ScienceInsider.

Researchers in Japan describe a chimpanzee with a chromosomal abnormality similar to human Down syndrome, Mashable reports.
