We now have the capacity to quickly and cheaply sequence an individual’s genome and scour it for disease-causing genes. But how much, and what type, of information does a parent-to-be want to know?
Genomics will change what patients expect from their provider, as well as change how physicians treat them. Before this happens, education on both sides is needed. This month we look at some of the big talking points.
Genetics is influencing more and more of our decisions, but we can’t make the right choices if we don’t understand it.
The NIH’s All of Us Research Program issued a funding announcement yesterday for Genome Centres to generate genotype and whole genome sequence data from participants’ biosamples.
A new study shows for the first time, that the levels of the same two sperm miRNAs change in both men and mice exposed to early life stress.
In this open discussion webinar, DNA Genotek and Illumina discuss what’s trending in whole genome sequencing (WGS).
A major new analysis reveals for the first time the likely cause of most cases of childhood leukaemia, and that the disease might be preventable.
Our ability to reconstruct physical features from DNA is advancing, but can we ensure the privacy of “anonymised” genetic data if we can predict the face of its owner?
The U.K. Prime Minister, Theresa May has made her first appearance in a series on industrial strategy, whereby she has pledged millions of pounds of government funding to develop artificial intelligence to transform outcomes through early diagnosis of cancer and chronic disease.
The Cleveland Clinic and Brooks Automation have said they are launching a 21,000 square foot biorepository in Cleveland’s Fairfax neighbourhood to improve researchers’ study of human tissue samples and advance personalised medicine.
A new way to simplify complex biomolecular data about tumours could in principle make it easier to prescribe the appropriate treatment for a specific patient.
Scientists have located sections of DNA that appear to play a role in controlling whether an individual’s skin burns or tans, which has laid the groundwork for genetic tests that could predict people’s responses to sunlight.
