It has now been 16 years since the Human Genome Project sequenced the first ever human genome: in that time, as has been mentioned in previous editions of this report, more than 500,000 genomes have been sequenced, generating enough data to drastically raise computational resource usage and create a need for rapid innovation to offset […]
As the volume and depth of genomic data grows, bioinformaticians are translating genomic data into interpretable patterns leading to new biological insight.
In September 2019, Anglia Ruskin University’s (ARU’s) Cambridge campus will begin the first year of its new – and currently unique in the UK – Data Scientist Degree Apprenticeship for the bioinformatics profession. Ahead of this, ARU and the Wellcome Sanger Institute have set up a “Lunch and Learn” panel event for hiring managers and talent acquisition specialists, looking at how they can best recruit and support top apprentices.
Gene discovery could help pave way for development treatment for hearing loss
Consumers can contribute to medical breakthroughs and get rewarded for sharing health and genomic data while maintaining privacy and control.
AMP 2018: Decoding the Cancer Genome: Breakthrough AI Technology Quickly Identifies Actionable Mutations
Explosive advances in next-generation sequencing (NGS) have greatly improved the ability to identify actionable cancer mutations, both for solid and hematological malignancies, and sparked a new era of oncology care. But accurate analysis and proper interpretation of the complex genomic data produced by NGS remain key hurdles.
Maize is one of the most economically important crops globally and much effort has been spent generating the high quality B73 reference genome. However, the 10 chromosome, 2.3 gigabase (Gb) B73 reference genome was a substantial challenge due to the fact it is comprised of 85% transposable elements, 75% of which are long terminal […]
Genomics England names Congenica as its Clinical Decision Support Service partner for the delivery of the NHS Genomic Medicine Service.
With artificial intelligence, machines can now examine thousands of medical images for signs of disease. Will this technology replace doctors – or work side by side with them?
Thanks to a newly developed computational method, researchers can accurately predict how one subpopulation of cells can be converted into another.
