Researchers sequenced dozens of Treponema pallidum isolates associated with syphilis, yaws, or bejel to look at the emergence of pandemic syphilis.

A genome assembly for the Japanese flounder, Paralichthys olivaceus, was analyzed alongside sequences from the Chinese tongue sole, another flatfish.

The partners aim to create a broad collection of high-quality genomic and clinical data from multiple myeloma patients to improve disease diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment.

The researchers added that these expression changes could be used to predict when a bloom might occur.

The study is the first published data of BGI's desktop sequencer, BGISEQ-500, which German researchers are studying for use in evaluating microRNA biomarkers.
