An international team analyzed the genomes of 65 wild-born chimpanzees and 10 bonobos to uncover evidence of gene flow.

The funding comes from a Spanish national program aimed at funding innovative scientific research of high social and economic impact.

Researchers at the Hartwig Medical Foundation have launched a clinical trial that seeks to match tumor biomarkers with experimental and off-label drugs.

The next-generation sequencing-based test is designed to detect bacteria and viruses in blood samples from patients with suspected infections, especially immunocompromised patients.

Second Genome will work with Kings College researchers to profile infants' skin and gut microbiomes and integrate that information with other omics data collected as part of the study.
