Researchers were able to predict the expression of certain genes in 44 different tissues to predict other conditions that might later arise in patients as well as identify potential therapeutic approaches. 

Two research teams found potentially useful PGx variants in more than 1,000 participants in the NIH Undiagnosed Diseases Program, as well as in a handful of ClinSeq participants.

Researchers identified Neanderthal alleles associated with human conditions using genotypic and phenotypic information in health records for more than 28,000 individuals. 

The company received the funding from the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness' Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology.

The companies are combining their respective software platforms to provide an end-to-end genomic testing solution for hospital labs.

The companies will create a cloud-based platform combining Guardant Health's liquid biopsy testing results with patient clinical data.

The program comprises several centers aimed at genetic and pharmacogenomic testing in order to tailor the diagnosis and treatment of patients. 

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – The National Human Genome Research Institute will award up to $5.1 million next year to fund two or three centers that will coordinate and house the genotyping and sequencing services for its Electronic Medical Records and Genomics Network (eMERGE).

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — Early data from the University of Chicago's 1,200 Patients Project — a preemptive PGx genotyping feasibility study — suggests there is strong interest among physicians and patients for the routine incorporation of PGx information in heatlhcare decision making.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Seattle-based angel funding group Alliance of Angels said today that medical genomics startup ActX raised $1.9 million in a seed round.
