The CHARGE Consortium undertake the largest ever study of the genetics of memory. Meta-analysis reveals genetic variants associated with memory loss.
Data is at the heart of applicable genomics. As the volume and depth of genomic data grows, bioinformaticians are translating the data into interpretable patterns leading to new biological insight.
What do we need most, to keep genomics moving?
As new genomic information becomes available, is the clinic duty bound to inform patients who might be affected?
User-friendly analytical tools could be set to help make genomic analysis much more widespread.
ISB, Google and SRA International are going to make it easier to access and analyse genomic data.
With the eruption in ‘omic’ data, there aren’t enough people with the necessary skills to translate it into applicable knowledge.
