U.S-based cancer testing startup Grail Inc., a spin out of genome sequencing firm Illumina, filed a preliminary prospectus for a $100 million initial public offering (IPO) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Researchers with Scripps Research and other institutions around the globe published a study in the journal Nature Medicine debunking the theory that the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 is manmade after an analysis of the genome sequence of SARS-CoV-2.
What if you could detect cancer just as it is getting started? New research published in the journal Nature just might give medicine the tools to do just that.
In this webinar, Dr. Benjamin Darbro and Alyssa Hahn will discuss how their organization is using Natural Language Processing to transform unstructured source data into clinical and research decision support insights.
Working in the rare disease space has never been more rewarding than it is today. Technology is turning what was once thought to be impossible into actual, tangible realities for physicians, patients, and families. There are many exciting advancements happening now – in real time – and even more on the horizon that demand our attention and advocacy to help bring them to light.
Personal Genome Diagnostics Inc. (PGDx), a leader in cancer genomics, and KingMed Diagnostics, a laboratory services leader in China, announced that they have entered into a strategic partnership for the PGDx elioTM tissue complete assay.
When consumers have their genome tested by services such as 23andMe and Ancestry.com, the companies hold the rights to the genetic information, which they often sell to biopharmaceutical companies. Nebula Genomics is taking a different approach.
A company formed by genome pioneer Craig Venter will offer clients of a South Africa-based insurance company whole exome sequencing –sequencing all protein-making genes in the human genome – at a price that marks yet another dramatic decline in the cost of gene sequencing, the two companies said on Tuesday. Venter’s company, Human Longevity Inc, […]
Investigations into foodborne illness are being radically transformed by whole genome sequencing, which federal officials say is enabling them to identify the source of an outbreak far more quickly and prevent additional cases. Previously, samples from sick patients were sent to state and federal labs, where disease detectives ran tests to see if the […]
