A new RNA startup looks to reimagine heart treatments, with eyes set on Entresto

When Samir Ounzian left London a decade ago to study a little-understood branch of the genome at a Swiss lab, he wasn’t sure what he would find. Known as long-non-coding RNA, these sections were translated into looping rings of RNA — hence the name — but didn’t actually translate into proteins, and no one was …

Mutational hotspot in the SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein N-terminal domain conferring immune escape potential

Our team at SOPHiA GENETICS continues to work to help advance the efforts of SARS-CoV-2 surveillance and research. During the first stages of the pandemic, we leveraged our experience in NGS and developed a robust solution for full-genome analysis of SARS-CoV-2 to identify circulating and emerging strains. Recently, our genomic experts have worked with international partners …
