Newswise: UC San Diego-led Study Finds Close Evolutionary Proximity Between Microbial Domains in the ‘Tree of Life’

UC San Diego-led Study Finds Close Evolutionary Proximity Between Microbial Domains in the ‘Tree of Life’

University of California San Diego

A comprehensive analysis of 10,575 genomes as part of a multi-national study led by researchers at UC San Diego has revealed close evolutionary proximity between the microbial domains at the base of the tree of life, the branching pattern of evolution described by Charles Darwin more than 160 years ago in his book, On the Origin of Species.

Newswise: Multimodal Genomic Analyses Predict Response to Immunotherapy in Lung Cancer Patients

Multimodal Genomic Analyses Predict Response to Immunotherapy in Lung Cancer Patients

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Researchers at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, the Bloomberg~Kimmel Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine have developed an integrated genomic approach that potentially could help physicians predict which patients with nonsmall cell lung cancer will respond to therapy with immune checkpoint inhibitors.

Heterogeneity of Liver Cancer Cells Helps Explain Tumor Progression in Patients, Mount Sinai Research Found

Mount Sinai Health System

Many liver cancer tumors contain a highly diverse set of cells, a phenomenon known as intra-tumor heterogeneity that can significantly affect the rate at which the cancer grows, Mount Sinai researchers report. The immune system’s contribution to this heterogeneity can have major clinical implications.

Large Study of Subtle, Rare Genetic Differences Reveals Several New Clinically Relevant Targets for Variety of Diseases

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

A large, multicenter study led by researchers at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) compared the genomic data of more than 100,000 people of European ancestry and discovered how relatively rare, albeit recurrent, genetic variations can influence a variety of common diseases. In addition, existing drugs could be repurposed to target these conditions – ranging from autoimmune diseases to neuropsychological diseases and even cancer – now that the genetic underpinnings of these conditions are known.
