Childhood cancer program powered by genomics and philanthropy

Children with high-risk cancers have received effective treatments leading to complete or partial regression of their cancer thanks to a pioneering research program that tailors therapy based on the complete DNA sequence of a patient’s individual tumour. A report of 247 participants of the Zero Childhood Cancer Program published in the prestigious scientific journal Nature Medicine, […]

Scientists use genomics to discover an ancient dog species that may teach us about human vocalization

In a study published in PNAS, researchers used conservation biology and genomics to discover that the New Guinea singing dog, thought to be extinct for 50 years, still thrives. Scientists found that the ancestral dog population still stealthily wanders in the Highlands of New Guinea. This finding opens new doors for protecting a remarkable creature that […]
