Using absolute and relative gene expression analyses, researchers identified expression patterns associated with preeclampsia in dozens of placental tissue samples.

Variant data for thousands of Europeans led to seven facial feature-associated sites in the genome, including loci near development or disease-related genes.

The MINDACT study of Agendia's MammaPrint has reported that using the tool could cut the use of chemotherapy in half.

The findings could lead to a more personalized approach for preventing asthma in children, the researchers suggested.

Researchers from both teams plan to continue to refine their findings toward creating simple PCR or other nucleic acid amplification-based assays.
