An innovative bioinformatics approach developed at MIT and the Institute Pasteur allows genomes to be assembled within minutes on a standard desktop computer, a process that normally takes many hours and uses high amounts of computing power.
The study validates that real-world data obtained from routine clinical care to create a multi-institution clinico-genomic database can yield clinically meaningful insights.
Enhancements include upgrading the platform’s sponsor-reviewer interaction, adding support for multi-omics, and offering a library of analytical, statistical, and machine learning applications that are both accessible to reviewers and sufficiently powerful for bioinformaticians.
There is no doubt the age of wearable monitors is upon us. Sales of physical activity monitors have increased dramatically from 15 million in...
Taproot has announced an initial five Cornerstone Centers, including three NCI-designated Cancer Centers, that have agreed to work together to provide a high volume of regulatory-grade data to advance precision oncology care.
Combining wearable devices, handheld devices and digital apps lets researchers tell the difference between people with early dementia and those without it.
Researchers say tool is more accurate at predicting ovarian cancer prognosis than current methods and pinpoints more effective treatments
John Halamka, M.D., will oversee Mayo Clinic Platform as it carries out initial projects focused on home healthcare scheduling, patient data uploading, and supplying patient-specific treatment information based on Mayo Clinic data.
Researchers analyzed DNA from nearly 50,000 people of non-European decent and found 27 new genetic variants associated with chronic diseases, including high blood pressure,...
In a UC Davis study, researchers described methods by which someone could learn database genotypes by uploading multiple datasets. For example, a person who uploads approximately 900 genomes could recover at least one allele at SNP sites across up to 82% of the genome of a median person of European ancestries.
