Researchers analyzed evolutionarily constrained non-coding mutations in genome sequences from dozens of glioblastoma patients, identifying regulation-related changes.

Single-cell RNA sequencing uncovered interactions between colorectal cancer alterations and corresponding immune cell and stromal features.

Agilent, which co-led Mission Bio's 2018 $30 million Series B financing round, will comarket the Tapestri platform to cancer researchers in North America.

A new paper outlines an upcoming effort to trace tumor development and trajectory in time and space using single-cell genetics and other genomic methods.

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.

Genes influencing NOTCH pathway activity were linked to head and neck squamous cell carcinoma with a mouse screen centered on genes with long tail mutations in human cases.

Members of a large, international consortium tapped into whole-genome sequences from nearly 2,700 tumors to explore coding and non-coding variants contributing to cancer.

Researchers found that some cells from former smokers had mutational patterns more similar to those from never-smokers, suggesting that quitting at any age can be beneficial.

The results suggest patients receiving stem cell transplants for blood cancers may be at increased risk of somatic mutation-related complications even with young bone marrow donors.

The University of Washington spinout will use the funding to commercialize duplex sequencing technology to detect low-frequency DNA mutations.
