…abnormal changes in the genome, the combinations of which can be unique to each individual patient. To better characterize the functional context of genomic variations in cancer, researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and the Broad Institute developed a new computer algorithm they call REVEALER.

…Institute (JCVI), a not-for-profit genomics research institute, held an official groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday for their new facility on the UC San Diego campus. The JCVI building, designed by ZGF Architects, will be a state-of-the-art, “ultra-green” 45,000-square-foot, highly adaptable wet laboratory and computational laboratory building. The building, slated to be completed…
