The Long Life Family Study has enrolled 4,953 participants in 539 pedigrees in the US and Denmark that are enriched for exceptional longevity.

Researchers saw signs of an unreported Zika virus outbreak in Cuba in 2017, well after the documented decline in new cases in Brazil and other parts of the world.

Researchers saw representatives from at least three population clusters who died up to 1,000 years apart at the "enigmatic" site in the Indian Himalayas.

The clinic will offer comprehensive DNA sequencing, interpretation, and reporting of disease-associated genes for healthy adults and their children.

The companies will build clinical-genomic datasets to serve medical practitioners at the point of care as well as inform drug development.

An analysis of more than 900 C. difficile isolates uncovered four phylogenetic lineages, including three lineages in a clade showing recent positive selection on infection-related genes.

Researchers analyzed more than 550 new and previously sequenced exomes for individuals from African rainforest hunter-gatherer and farming populations, searching for local adaptations.
