SUMMARY: Whole genome tests, which look at a person's complete genetic makeup, are nearly twice as likely to reveal genetic abnormalities that cause disease in infants compared to narrower tests, according to a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The study found that whole genome tests were able to detect 49% of abnormalities, compared to 27% with narrower tests. The tests are particularly useful for diagnosing rare disorders in infants, with around 350 million people worldwide living with rare disorders. However, there are some challenges such as varying interpretations of results and the high cost of testing.

SUMMARY: Campaign finance reports reveal that two key committees in Donald Trump's political operation only raised $13.8 million in January while spending more than they earned. This was largely due to hefty legal fees from Trump's numerous court cases.

Meanwhile, Trump's rival Nikki Haley outraised his primary campaign committee by almost $3 million. Trump's campaign spokesperson did not directly address the financial situation, but stated that voters are tired of Joe Biden's policies.
