molecular cytogenetics Columbia University-led Study Highlights Bionano Optical Genome Mapping Concordance with Cytogenetics Bionano Genomics called the study, presented this week at the American College for Medical Genetics meeting, an "incredibly important milestone" for the company. NIH Awards Two SBIR Grants Totaling $3.9M to Phase Genomics The Seattle-based firm has won two grants each worth $1.9 million to develop proximity ligation assays with applications in cytogenetics. Bionano Genomics Reports Preliminary Q1 Revenues of $1.1M Because of COVID-19, the San Diego-based firm said it was unable to ship new instruments and many users were unable to operate their existing ones. Bionano Genomics Q3 Revenues Rise 17 Percent The San Diego-based genomic analysis firm reported $3.3 million in revenue, driven by growth in North America sales, offset by a decline in international sales. Empire Genomics Lands CE Mark for Several Products The firm's cytogenetic media, immunohistochemistry products, and fish probes have been certified for marketing in Europe.

Lupus Heterogeneity Highlighted With Single-Cell Transcriptomes Using single-cell RNA sequencing, researchers in Nature Communications tracked down immune and non-immune cell differences between discoid lupus erythematosus and systemic lupus erythematosus. Rare Disease Clues Gleaned From Mobile Element Insertions in Exome Sequences With an approach called MELT, researchers in the European Journal of Human Genetics uncovered mobile element insertions in exomes from 3,232 individuals with or without developmental or neurological abnormalities. Team Tracks Down Potential Blood Plasma Markers Linked to Heart Failure in Atrial Fibrillation Patients Researchers in BMC Genomics found 10 differentially expressed proteins or metabolites that marked atrial fibrillation with heart failure cases.
