New ONC initiative aims to standardize patient address formats

Launching in 2021, the ONC’s Project US@ aims to enhance efforts to correctly link patients with their health data — a key part of interoperability — by standardizing the way patients’ mailing addresses are formatted. Source: New ONC initiative aims to standardize patient address formats

Accumulated genetic variations: What they are and why they matter to a complete health picture

Unlike inherited genetic predispositions, accumulated genetic changes are the result of environmental influences, such as smoking, chemicals or ultra-violet radiation. A growing body of research links somatic changes to an increased likelihood of blood cancers and cardiovascular disease, both heart disease and stroke.

Transcriptome-wide analysis and modelling of prognostic alternative splicing signatures in invasive breast cancer: a prospective clinical study

Aberrant alternative splicing (AS) has been highly involved in the tumorigenesis and progression of most cancers. The potential role of AS in invasive breast cancer (IBC) remains largely unknown. In this study, RNA sequencing of IBC samples from The Cancer Genome Atlas was acquired … Source: http://feeds.nature.com/~r/srep/rss/current/~3/fb46DUk1eKc/s41598-020-73700-1
