The clinical laboratory has designed a hereditary cancer risk gene panel capable of detecting both SNVs and CNVs without requiring an orthogonal validation test. 

The panel will be offered out of JAX Genomic Medicine's CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited lab and will support Jackson's Maine Cancer Genomics Initiative.

A study by researchers in Austria suggests read depth patterns upstream of transcription start sites can provide clues to gene expression.

Researchers from the University of Laval demonstrated the advantages and trade-offs of a handful of genotyping-by-sequencing pipelines. 

The company is also developing a next-generation sequencing product that may be applied at the point of need to test for bloodstream infections and later as a liquid biopsy for cancer.
