tumor sequencing

The Ontario Institute of Cancer Research-hosted Cancer Genome Collaboratory has amassed 650 TB of data and supported early discovery of mutations.

Using RNA sequences for thousands of cells, researchers looked at head and neck squamous cell carcinomas and proposed streamlined expression subtypes.

The agency said that its action on MSK IMPACT "advances a policy framework that paves the way for the efficient review and availability of other NGS-based cancer profiling tools."

The Irving, Texas-based company claims that three of Foundation Medicine's cancer molecular profiling tests infringe five of its US patents.

With exome sequences, RNA sequences, and methylation profiles, investigators uncovered differences between radiation-induced and sporadic forms of meningioma.

The software, developed by researchers at the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research, uses machine learning methods to classify mutations as germline or somatic.

Dust off the Samples

UK researchers have dug into the archive to find more cancer samples for sequencing, Nature News reports.

The new joint venture will offer Kew's next-generation sequencing-based cancer test to guide treatment for patients. 

The collaboration will streamline patient sample analysis to determine whether they should be included in clinical trials for molecularly targeted treatment. 

The agreement with Taiwan's Prisma Biotech is the second distribution deal in Asia for Intermountain Precision Genomics' ICG100 tumor sequencing test.
