Genomics: Clinical Implementation

This channel includes news headlines and educational resources regarding the clinical implementation of genomics assays, including development, validation, quality control, standardization, and the practical and commercial considerations for labs adopting these tests. 

Yale researchers said that they anticipate their RNA extraction-free saliva assay will make testing more scalable, affordable, and available to the public.

Based on the results of Project Baby Bear, Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego hopes the State of California will cover rapid whole-genome sequencing going forward.

The company is commercializing a genome-wide sequencing method called MRDetect, developed by researchers at the New York Genome Center and Weill Cornell Medicine. 

The framework is meant to guide healthcare providers in facilitating prostate cancer genetic testing in a timely and responsible way, the researchers said.

The study will compare whole-genome sequencing and RNA sequencing to conventional diagnostic methods in about 450 acute leukemia patients in Sweden.
