• Survey Suggests Alzheimer’s Research Is Missing the Boat

    Aug 18 | Bio-IT World | A research team is advocating for a more data-driven approach to Alzheimer’s research where sets of biological pathways get grouped with mechanisms the body itself uses to ward off the disease. More
  • Metabolomics Crucial To Personalizing Lung Cancer Therapy

    Aug 17 | Bio-IT World | A popular hypothesis in oncology research over the past few years is that immunotherapy works synergistically with glutaminase inhibition. Banking on that assumption, clinical trials have launched to evaluate the combination approach in patients with non-small cell lung cancer. More
  • Long COVID and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Have A Lot In Common

    Aug 16 | Bio-IT World | Evidence is emerging that long COVID (formally “post-acute sequelae SARS-CoV-2 infection,” or PASC) bears a striking, molecular-level resemblance to the disabling and complex illness now known as myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome. More
  • Classification System For Colorectal Cancer Needs An Update

    Aug 11 | Bio-IT World | A multi-national team of clinicians and scientists has determined that the consensus molecular subtype (CMS) classification of colorectal cancer needs updating to better reflect the molecular underpinnings of the disease. More
  • GA4GH Phenopackets Standard Published By ISO

    Aug 10 | Bio-IT World | The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has published Phenopackets, a standard initially developed by the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health and championed at ISO under the Canadian Mirror Committee to ISO/TC215/SC1 Genomics informatics, and supported by the Standards Council of Canada.

  • Online ‘Biclustering’ Tool Stratifies Patients To The Molecular Level

    Aug 09 | Bio-IT World | Researchers in Germany have developed a web-based tool, powered by machine learning, which extracts disease subtypes from large pools of patient data. The goal is more precise and robust predictions about molecular signatures that can serve as a starting point for investigating disease heterogeneity. More
  • How Deleted and Siloed Data Are Slowing Discovery

    Aug 05 | Bio-IT World | Though advancements in instruments and software have driven life sciences breakthroughs that drastically improve global health outcomes, researchers still struggle to maximize the value of the huge datasets that these high-throughput technologies generate. Currently, two common practices stand in the way of good data management at many life sciences institutions. More
  • Bio-IT World Announces European Best of Show Awards

    Aug 03 | Bio-IT World | Bio-IT World is bringing the Best of Show competition to Europe this fall at the Bio-IT World Conference & Expo Europe in Berlin, October 18-19. More
  • Electrical Tissue Dissociation Outperforms Mechanical, Chemical Approaches

    Aug 02 | Bio-IT World | A team of researchers from Brown University are in the process of developing a simple, inexpensive, portable device to electrically dissociate tissues into viable single cells. They’ve published the work in Scientific Reports, and foresee the approach being useful in both clinical diagnostics and basic scientific research. More
  • Target Discovery Engine for ALS, DRAGEN Update, Anti-Aging Analytic Software, More

    Jul 28 | Bio-IT World | Merck announces a Digital Sciences Studio to support early-stage biomedical startups; a new suite of informatics tools anticipates pharmaceutical manufacturing bottlenecks; Novartis Pharmaceuticals UK announces the Novartis Biome UK Heart Health Catalyst 2022 Initiative; and more.
