The company and its scientific collaborators are discussing its method for assembling tough "long-read" stretches of DNA into whole genomes at the Advances in Genome Biology & Technology conference.

    Metropolis' chain of diagnostics labs pushes for growth across India and Africa
    Forbes
    Ameera Shah's earliest memory of work is summer internships at ages 9 and 10 at her father's pathology lab in Mumbai. She'd welcome clients, answer calls and write out receipts. Shah even recalls striding into dad's office one day and asking him to let her call him "sir" so that people wouldn't treat her like the boss' daughter. From that humble start Shah, 35, is now CEO, promoter and managing director of the $350 million Metropolis Healthcare. Since joining her doctor dad's pathology lab in 2001 she has expanded it from one lab with revenue of $1.5 million and about 40 employees into a multinational chain of 125 with $90 million in revenue and 4,500 employees.

    Blood samples reflect info from tumor biopsies in NSCLC
    Medscape
    New findings show that it is feasible to determine epidermal growth-factor receptor mutations from the blood samples of patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer and correlate them to clinical outcomes. The information is similar to that obtained from tumor tissue biopsies, but blood samples are obviously easier to obtain. The findings, from an analysis of the phase 3 European Erlotinib Versus Chemotherapy study, were published online in JAMA Oncology.
