Blood Test Shows Promise for Detecting Cancer Far Earlier

Scientists in Ontario used machine learning techniques to find telltale signs of cancer in blood samples that were collected up to seven years prior to conventional diagnosis.

Scientists ID Genetic Risk Factors For Suicide

While any suicide attempt is triggered by a complex array of factors, new studies indicate that genetic variants contribute to a person’s risk. That could pave the way for new treatments or diagnostic tests.

Genetic Tests Won’t Predict Your COVID-19 Risk

Tests that claim to predict someone’s susceptibility to COVID-19 based on genetic data don’t work, researchers found. That’s partly because there is as yet no scientific consensus on what constitutes genetic risk.

New Report: Genomics Drives Economic Growth

The field of human genomics has risen from inauspicious beginnings to become an economic powerhouse, and continues to increase our understanding of human health and how to cure diseases.

Annual Vaccines May Be Necessary: Lessons from the COVID-19 Genome

The genomic field continues to shed light on COVID-19. The latest: vaccination frequency, new therapy options, and unexpected mutations in the virus.

Why the U.S. Needs More COVID-19 Genome Sequencing

Other countries can spot new variants because they’re actively looking for them. But the U.S. has spent a year with its head in the sand.

Five Things Genomics Has Taught Us About COVID-19

‘Everything is unprecedented about the pandemic, and genomics is no exception,’ says an infectious disease expert. Genome sequencing has enabled scientists to track the virus, study its origins, confirm reinfection, and get to know more...
