The partners will develop an NGS panel for solid and liquid tumors for use in personalized oncology.

Sonic will make the blood-based Harmony test, which assesses the risk of a fetus having trisomy 21, available in Australia and the UK.

The researchers found that the noninvasive test could detect signs of transplant rejection and infection in a cohort of 51 patients. 

Most study participants seem to be increasingly comfortable contributing their genetic results to their electronic medical records as the study progresses.

The NIH is seeking applications from research institutes that will support the consortium's efforts in the areas of genomics and proteomics, as well as bioinformatics.
