New Genebass Online Resource Helps Connect Rare Genetic Variants to Human Disease and Health

MIT and Harvard Researchers Create Online Resource to Help Connect Rare Genetic Variants to...

In 2006, researchers discovered that people with certain variants of the gene PCSK9 had dramatically lower cholesterol levels than the general population. Individuals with two broken copies of the gene — one from each parent — were up to 88...
Mount Sinai Launches Large-Scale Human Genetic Sequencing Research Project with the Regeneron Genetics Center

Mount Sinai Partners with Regeneron Genetics Center to Launch Huge Genetic Sequencing Research Project

Mount Sinai Health System and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have launched a new human genome sequencing research project called the Mount Sinai Million Health Discoveries Program with the Regeneron Genetics Center (RGC), part of the...
New Way of Modeling Approach helps Advance Cryopreservation with Applications to Organ and Tissue Preservation

New Way of Modeling Approach helps Advance Organ and Tissue Cryopreservation

Prem Solanki and Yoed Rabin of Carnegie Mellon University’s Biothermal Technology Laboratory have developed a new way of modeling the solidification of fluids in confined volumes, with applications to organ and tissue preservation. Cryogenics is the study, production, and use of...
New Research Study Explores the Use of Blockchain Technology to Protect Indigenous Genomic Data

New Study Explores the Use of Blockchain Technology to Protect Indigenous Genomic Data

Genomic data from Indigenous communities plays an important role in understanding an array of diseases; however, this data has often been used without informed consent. A team of UC San Diego researchers—including San Diego Supercomputer Center affiliate Timothy Mackey—recently...
Human Organ Safe Storage a Step Closer with Cryopreservation Discovery

Human Organ Safe Storage a Step Closer with New Cryopreservation Discovery

The team’s discovery of new cryoprotective agents opens the door to many more being developed that could one day help to eliminate the need for organ transplant waiting lists. Their results are published in the Journal of Materials Chemistry B. Cryopreservation is...
Mapping Out the Human Genome by Using Genotyping

VA’s MVP Mega-Biobank Collaborates with NIH to Advance Genetic Discoveries for Veterans

Since 2011, more than 875,000 Veterans have donated their DNA to the VA Million Veteran Program (MVP). In the program, VA researchers are sequencing Veterans' genomes—a complete set of genetic material—to better understand how genes, lifestyles, and military exposures...
