Mutant genes could supercharge efforts to decipher protein structures | Science
Mapping the atomic structure of proteins is crucial to understanding how they behave, but it’s painstaking work that typically requires dedicated, expensive facilities with supercooled, powerful magnets or stadium-size synchrotrons. Douglas Fowler, associate professor of genome sciences at the UW, is quoted.

Opinion: Gene patents should be outlawed once and for all | Bloomberg
"The practice of patenting genes, once banned by the Supreme Court, may come back soon despite a measure of horror the very idea once inspired," writes Faye Flam of Bloomberg. Work by Mary-Claire King, professor of medicine and of genome sciences at the UW, is referenced.

Mutations lead to cellular mosaics in human tissue | NPR
Your body has about 40 trillion cells, and they all arose from a single fertilized egg. But it turns out the DNA in many of those cells is no longer a perfect clone of that original one. Dr. Jay Shendure, a professor of genome sciences and scientific director of the Brotman Baty Institute for Precision Medicine, is quoted.

The new techniques revealing the varied shapes of chromatin | Nature
Using a highly multiplexed form of fluorescence in situ hybridization in combination with super-resolution microscopy, researchers mapped several million bases of human chromosome 21 at 30 kilobase resolution, tracing their shape like a dot-to-dot puzzle. Brian Beliveau, assistant professor of genome sciences at the UW, is quoted.

Reference genome is threatening dream of personalized medicine | STAT
The human reference genome, largely completed in 2001, has achieved near-mythic status. It is “the book of life,” the “operating manual for Homo sapiens.” But the reference genome falls short in ways that have become embarrassing, misleading, and, in the worst cases, emblematic of the white European dominance of science. Evan Eichler, a professor of genome sciences at the UW, is quoted.

New recommendations say not all women need genetic testing for cancer — critics say it could cost lives | CNN
Primary care providers should screen women for personal, family and/or ethnic history of breast, ovarian, tubal or peritoneal cancer to decide who should undergo genetic counseling for BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations, the US Preventive Services Task Force recommended Tuesday. Mary-Claire King, a professor of genome sciences and medical genetics at the UW, is quoted.

How machine learning is crafting precision medicine | Forbes
Medicine has become more and more individualized since the days of leeches and humors, but in the last 15 years, an explosion of patient data in the form of genetic information and electronic health records has sharpened the doctor’s picture of the individual patient—and of treatments tailored to their precise needs. Dr. Jay Shendure, director of the UW-based Brotman Baty Institute for Precision Medicine and professor of genome sciences at the UW, and Dr. Pamela Becker, professor of hematology and medicine at the UW, are quoted. Su-In Lee, associate professor of computer science and engineering at the UW, is mentioned.
