SNP genotyping

Three major European genomics service providers have founded a consortium to offer cost-effective, whole-genome genotyping on a new Illumina SNP array.

Genome-wide association and other genetic studies hint at variants increasing subsequent neoplasm risk in individuals treated for cancer during childhood.

Using a combination of exome sequencing, SNP arrays, and RNA sequencing, researchers found therapeutically informative mutations in most solid tumor cases tested.

In individuals at risk of colorectal cancer, pre-cancerous adenomas contain somatic mutations affecting known cancer genes and pathways.

Data from 43 genome-wide association studies have led researchers to individual variants and genetic factors that influence multiple phenotypes and conditions.

Researchers at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research discussed their efforts to use genomics to protect patients from radiotherapy toxicity.

The study will screen patients using a combination of genotyping and wireless sensors to develop a better diagnostic method. 

Researchers identified a common variant in a long non-coding RNA that may contribute to inflammation seen in patients diagnosed with celiac disease. 

Through a genome-wide association study, University College London researchers have linked certain SNPs to hair shape, graying, and unibrow, among other traits.

Researchers relied on three typing methods to define two Yersinia pestis sub-populations that largely cluster by elevation in plague-prone regions of Uganda.
