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.
