gene mapping

The Solna, Sweden-based company is currently expanding from offering in situ sequencing services to selling kits.

By analyzing metagenomic sequences found in thousands of human mouth and gut samples, researchers tracked down almost 45.7 million distinct microbial genes.

Researchers used fine mapping and other approaches to prioritize proposed coding and non-coding causal variants at rheumatoid arthritis- and type 1 diabetes-linked loci.

Data for hundreds of thousands of participants led to 20 new risk loci for allergic rhinitis, which were further examined by functional annotation and fine mapping.

Backed by Andreessen Horowitz and Polaris Partners, Camp4 hopes its high-resolution gene maps can shorten and remove risk from the drug development process.

Researchers used a capture Hi-C strategy to identify candidate target genes and pathways at dozens of loci previously linked to breast cancer susceptibility.

Researchers found rare mutations in USP45 and ARID1A by applying a shared genomic segment mapping approach to several large multiple myeloma-affected families.

Researchers from the Netherlands Cancer Institute plan to spin out a company to use sequencing-based cellular network mapping to aid in drug development.

The startup, which was founded by Harvard's George Church, plans to commercialize a sequencing technology that is also able to map RNAs in 3D. 

The firm said the method could lead to more studies on the genetic determinants of disease for people of mixed or non-European ethnic backgrounds.
