Three duplications appear to affect HOXB8 expression levels in the facial skin of chickens to give them a bearded look, researchers have found.
Truncations to PD-L1's 3' untranslated region were detected in a variety of tumor types, apparently increasing expression of the gene and decreasing immune response to it.
AstraZeneca'sVarDict was designed to more accurately identify complex tumor mutations in DNA and RNA sequencing data even in samples with low tumor content.

Spiral has developed graph-based query technology for compressing and querying large genomic cohorts quickly that is currently being piloted at Baylor College of Medicine
The researchers detected a number of known structural variants from cancer cell lines in a background of wild-type sequence, using mixtures of PCR amplicons.
The 1000 Genomes Project Consortium has shared their results with the scientific community in hopes of gaining insight into disease genomics.
By combining optical mapping with DNA sequencing, University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers examined structural variation that occurs in multiple myeloma tumors.
By combining structural variants with read depth change data, the software is able to find CNAs in whole-genome sequence that other methods miss.
The researchers used multiple sequencing technologies, library preparations, assembly methods, and genome mapping tools toward creating a reference diploid genome.
