April 30, 2010

Researchers have sequenced the genome of the western clawed frog (Xenopus tropicalis).

February 18, 2010

TARGET researchers used gene expression profiling to improve their ability to predict the outcome of children with high-risk B-precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).

Nature Genetics

The study described recurrent somatic mutations in EZH2, a polycomb group oncogene. The mutation, found in the SET domain of this gene encoding a histone methyltransferase, is found only in a subset of lymphoma samples.

The MGC Project Team announces the completion of the Mammalian Gene Collection.

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences

Researchers identified a poor prognostic subgroup of pediatric BCR-ABL1-negative ALL patients and reported that the JAK-mutated cases had a gene expression signature similar to BCR-ABL1 pediatric ALL and suggested inhibition of JAK signaling as a target for therapeutic intervention.

CGEMS Researchers have identified new genetic variations in two regions of DNA — located on chromosomes 1 and 14 — that may be associated with the risk of sporadic breast cancer.

The New England Journal of Medicine

Scientists identified more than 50 recurring copy-number abnormalities in a cohort of patients with B-cell progenitor ALL. Abnormalities were found in genes that encode regulators of B-cell development, PAX5 and IKZF1, a gene that encodes the lymphoid transcription factor IKAROS.
