Analysis provides clues to possible precision medicine treatment of rare nasal tract cancer The Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) and the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center at Scottsdale Healthcare have conducted whole genome sequencing (WGS) of a rare nasal tract cancer called olfactory neuroblastoma (ONB). Analysis of the billions of molecules that make up the patient's normal DNA, and cancerous DNA, discovered genetic mutations that could be future targets of advanced...

BGI Completes Sequencing Of Foxtail Millet Genome
2012-05-15 04:04:04

A report published in the online journal Nature Biotechnology states that BGI, the world´s biggest genomics organization, in collaboration with Zhangjiakou Academy of Agricultural Science, has successfully completed the analysis and genome sequence of foxtail millet (Setaria italica). Foxtail millet is the second most widely grown kind of millet. Published on May 13, 2012, the results of the study provide a vital resource for the genetic advancement and study of foxtail millet, as...

Advanced high-speed gene-sequencing has been used in the clinical setting to find diagnoses for seven children out of a dozen who were experiencing developmental delays and congenital abnormalities for mysterious reasons. "I thought if we could obtain even a couple of relatively secure diagnoses out of the 12 patients, that would prove the value of deploying sequencing approaches systematically in patients with unknown but apparently genetic conditions," said David Goldstein, Ph.D.,...

Whole Genome Testing Not Always Good At Predicting Diseases
2012-04-04 07:31:55

Researchers at John Hopkins University found that whole genome sequencing may not help most people find out whether their at risk for common diseases or not. The team reported online in the journal Science Translational Medicine that they doubt whole genome sequencing can reliably predict the majority of future medical problems that may occur in a person's life. During the research, the John Hopkins team used data from thousands of identical twins. On average, any two individuals'...

BETHESDA, Md., March 29, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) has released an important new Policy Statement on Genomic Sequencing. Released at the ACMG Annual Meeting in Charlotte, N.C., on March 28, the Policy Statement titled "Points to Consider in the Clinical Application of Genomic Sequencing" outlines general principles that are recommended as genome-scale DNA sequencing begins to be applied in the care of patients. These new...

Human geneticists have long debated whether the genetic risk of the most common medical conditions derive from many rare mutations, each conferring a high degree of risk in different people, or common differences throughout the genome that modestly influence risk. A new study by Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) researchers has harnessed data and new analysis tools to address this question in four common diseases: rheumatoid arthritis; celiac disease; coronary artery disease and...

Specialists agree: Many of the incidental findings discovered during genetic testing should be reported to ordering physician With whole-genome and whole-exome sequencing declining in price and improving in accuracy, these technologies are rapidly being integrated into clinical medicine. However, one of the most difficult obstacles to this integration is the uncertainty about searching for and reporting genetic results that are "incidental" or unrelated to the reasons the test was...
