To understand the biology of diseased organs, researchers can use different types of molecular data. One of the biggest computational challenges at the moment is integrating these multiple data types.
Efficiently translating genomic research into the clinic is one of the most important steps in the development of the field. The clinic is where we will see things come to fruition.
Computational researchers have developed a computer program which has revealed a previously unknown combination of drugs that may be the answer to triple-negative breast cancer.
Researchers from the Mayo Clinic recommends genetic testing for all pancreatic cancer patients as the new standard of care, after finding six genetic mutations in patients with no family history of the disease.
A large study has found that knowing your genetic risk for various diseases makes people switch to healthier lifestyles, and stick to them.
Genomic data company, Fabric Genomics have said its proprietary clinical genomics platform has been selected by 10 new commercial partners across Africa, Asia, Europe and North America.
Scientists are now genetically engineering monkeys using CRISPR in an attempt to understand how autism affects the brain.
Non-profit Bill & Melinda Gates Medical Research Institute (MRI) has officially been launched, creating a new vision for drug development with a clear focus on the millions of people that die annually from contracting malaria, tuberculosis and diarrheal diseases.
A new blood test for pregnant women detects with 75-80% accuracy whether their pregnancies will end in premature birth. The technique can also be used to estimate a fetus’ gestational age — or the mother’s due date — as reliably as and less expensively than ultrasound.
Despite the availability of hepatitis C treatment and changes in restrictions of these therapies, private insurance companies and even public payers like Medicaid and Medicare are still refusing to pay for it.
Singapore could become the second country to legalise MRT but they are considering a new method that differs from the two currently legal in the UK.
