Scientists Uncover Why Some Cancers Affect Only Young Women

Cells settling in an organ other than the correct one during embryogenesis are often the cause of rare ovarian and pancreatic cancers which affect only young women, researchers at the University of Geneva (UNIGE) and the University Hospitals of Geneva (HUG) have found.

What Could You Do With 10,000 Immunomes?

A database of normal human immunity has been created by scientists at UC San Francisco, creating an instant comparison group to let researchers use in studies of the immune system and immune dysfunction.

Human genome sequencing on PromethION: characterization of structural variants and repetitive regions

  At the VIB-UAntwerp Center for Molecular Neurology, we apply sequencing technologies to elucidate the genetic etiology of neurodegenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer Disease and Frontotemporal Dementia. Structural variation and repetitive regions are insufficiently characterized using currently dominant short-read sequencing technologies. Long-read sequencing on the Oxford Nanopore PromethION has the potential for a comprehensive […]

Precision Medicine: A Global Initiative

Despite representing over 40% of the global population, Asians are vastly underrepresented in genetic databases contributing around 1%. We take a look at how FDNA, and other key players are changing this.
