In Nature this week: CRISPR approaches to editing plant genomes, way to speed up DNA-PAINT, and more.

In Nature this week: a fluorescence in situ hybridization-based method for multiplex RNA imaging, benchmark dataset for structural variants, and more.

Through a Picture

A new study finds that three dimensional facial scans may be able to aid in diagnosing rare genetic diseases.

A GWAS that incorporated magnetic resonance imaging data for UK Biobank participants led to 45 previously undetected risk loci related to dilated cardiomyopathy.

The study suggests that pediatric low-grade gliomas driven by genetic rearrangements tend to be diagnosed earlier and have better outcomes than those driven by SNVs.

Seeing the Tongue-ome

Researchers find through imaging that the tongue microbiome is highly structured, Science reports.

Investigators teased out imaging signals and underlying biology that can differentiate the subset of brain cancers for which tumor DNA can be detected in blood. 

The technology uses photostable and bright phosphor-integrated dots for quantitative, amplification-free detection of proteins at cellular and subcellular levels.

The groups combined their circulating tumor cell collection and detection platforms to find higher cell numbers in metastatic breast, lung, and melanoma cancer patients. 

In Nature this week: hybridization and introgression affected genetic diversity of Dutch elm disease, genetic and phenotypic landscape of mitochondria in a Japanese population, and more.

The Washington Post reports on researchers' efforts to determine the effect of an increasingly common SARS-CoV-2 mutation.

Florida Politics reports Florida's law barring life, long-term care, and disability insurers from using genetic information in coverage decisions went into effect at the beginning of July.

A new analysis finds a link between popular media coverage of a scientific study and how often that paper is cited.
