Sequencing

A re-analysis of "failed" non-invasive prenatal tests based on whole-genome sequence data revealed hundreds of rare autosomal trisomies.

At the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics annual meeting in Phoenix, WuXi presented results from a pilot study involving 190 individuals.

The researchers also reported that the percentage of mutations attributable to replication errors, environmental exposures, and heredity varied by organ.

With the addition of Hi-C contact data, researchers have developed highly accurate genome assemblies.

Researchers found mutations thought to be associated with embryo development and used them to recreate early cellular life in the human body.
