mutation detection

Researchers designed a PCR-based test for pyrethroid resistance based on a cytochrome P450 allele that is common in Anopheles funestus mosquitoes from Malawi.

With retrospective and prospective analyses on women with BRCA1/2 mutations, investigators began teasing out breast cancer risk relative to reproductive history.

Genomic and transcriptomic data for almost 500 triple-negative breast cancer cases revealed four expression subtypes and suspected treatment targets.

Analyzing mutational signatures in cancer cell lines and xenografts, investigators identified mutagenic processes that do or don't remain active in vitro.

Researchers at UC Santa Cruz have found patterns in RNA sequencing data that have led to possible treatments for cancers with no actionable mutations.

Loss-of-function mutations in PADI3, which was previously linked to uncombable hair syndrome, appear to be involved in central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia.

With sequence data for 551 esophageal adenocarcinomas, researchers uncovered potential prognostic alterations and mutations that may sensitize tumors to treatment.

Researchers traced genomic, epigenomic, and expression features in lung carcinoma in situ cases that regressed or progressed to invasive lung squamous cell carcinomas.

A Chinese research team examined why cancer cell populations that amass deleterious mutations do not undergo population extinction.

A new analysis suggests that some mutations that seem to occur in tumors might actually stem from infiltrating blood cells affected by myeloproliferative neoplasms.
