The concept of three-parent babies defies what we learned in health class. But how and when is the third parent involved? At what stage? Jennifer Barfield gives us an update on the birds and the bees.
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.
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.
The study of viral ecology is taking major leaps forward with the use of long-read sequencing and viral metagenomics. On this webinar we discuss how MinION technology is bringing scientists closer to high-throughput single-virus genomics from environmental samples.
A new study provides a unique look at a novel strategy — clinical trials in a dish — that bridges preclinical testing and clinical trials.
Some regulatory hurdles for makers of direct-to-consumer genetic health risk test have been lifted by the US Food and Drug Administration.
