A study reveals that when Dna2 is absent, small DNA fragments jump from all over the genome into chromosome breaks. This novel mechanism may explain similar events commonly seen in cancer or during antibody diversification.
A special issue of the journal Human Mutation contains 25 papers related to the activities of the National Human Genome Research Institute-funded Clinical Genome Resource program (ClinGen) and ClinVar.
The Undiagnosed Diseases Network, a consortium of researchers including Baylor College of Medicine, Texas Children’s Hospital, Stanford University and other institutions, has found 31 new syndromes within two years of the group’s inception.
As part of a larger effort of the National Institutes of Health’s Somatic Cell Genome Editing program, researchers received a U42 grant to create mouse model resources for testing the therapeutic potential of novel genome editing approaches.
The All of Us Research Program, part of the National Institutes of Health, has named a consortia led by Baylor's Human Genome Sequencing Center as one of three centers responsible for generating clinical grade genomic data for the program.
To better understand a predisposition for acute lymphoblastic leukemia in children with Down syndrome, a team of researchers will sequence the genomes of more than 2,000 individuals with Down syndrome.
