Robert C. Green a physician and researcher at the Division of Genetics and Department of Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School whose research focuses on the integration of personal genomics into clinical practice talks about the future of genome sequencing. Here, he talks to the Boston Herald about what genome sequencing […]

Neil Davies | Biocode: The New Age of Genomics | Authors at Google

The living world runs on genomic software – what Dawn Field and Neil Davies call the ‘biocode’ – the sum of all DNA on Earth. In Biocode, they tell the story of a new age of scientific discovery: the growing global effort to read and map the biocode, and what that might mean for the […]

Craig Venter DNA: The Software Of Life

Great interview with Craig Venter from Google’s ZeitgeistMinds series last September. “Dr. Craig Venter is known for being the first person to decipher the human genetic code. Since then, he has been hard at work creating synthetic life, ranging from creating humanized pigs that can be used for organ donation, to understanding brain health that […]

CRISPR For Genome Editing

CRISPR, a pioneering genome-editing technique, technology will allow AstraZeneca to identify and validate new drug targets in preclinical models that closely resemble human disease.

Keeping Your Genome Safe

Sequencing your genes may mean better diagnosis and even treatment but what happens to your genome once it has been sequenced?
