After raising $320M in venture capital, Tempus hopes to sequence 100,000 samples in 2019 as it expands its precision medicine program into depression and diabetes.

The researchers studied edits generated by more than 40,000 gRNAs and gathered data for more than 109 mutational outcomes to create the software.

OMI researchers will apply and validate 1CellBio's inDrop system to generate predictive data for patients with undiagnosed immune dysfunction conditions. 

The investigators showed that template-free Cas9 editing is capable of repair to a predicted genotype, allowing for correction of disease-associated mutations.

The solution uses machine learning to pare down somatic variant lists, simplifying the task of manually reviewing the output of sequence analysis pipelines.

Researchers trained a machine-learning model to predict animal reservoirs or insect vectors for dozens of "orphan" viruses with unknown natural sources.

Two recent publications suggest that DeepVariant's machine learning is far superior to traditional methods of variant calling, especially with hardware accelerators.

As one of six grantee projects, investigators from Yale, Harvard, and Rice University are partnering with Microsoft to bring forward a combined technique for the early detection of NSCLC.

Some partners are implementing their solutions on the Azure cloud while others will accept output from Microsoft's genomics pipeline as input into their solutions.

The UK-based maker of clinical genomics interpretation software is moving into the US and China after carefully researching the differences from European markets.
