Researchers at the annual Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities meeting said they are joining single-cell sequencing to other single-cell analyses.

The partners plan to share information about joint R&D activities and establish research facilities and laboratory infrastructure in Ethiopia.

The bill aims to reduce barriers to the use of genetic and genomic testing, including for children on Medicaid with a suspected genetic disease.

The institute expects to announce its strategic plan in October 2020 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the launch of the Human Genome Project.
