We have achieved so much since the full human genome sequence was published for the first time, can you believe that was over fifteen years ago this month?
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.
Biotech startup Mammoth Biosciences launches a CRISPR powered search engine that ‘works like Google’ for disease detection.
Scientists have published the first detailed picture of the molecular structure of human telomerase, which will allow more targeted drug screens and intelligent design of new drugs.
E. coli bacteria are the frequent culprits behind outbreaks of food-borne illnesses. But not all strains are harmful; some are even helpful.
As a post-antibiotic future beckons, how can humanity protect itself against the proliferation of superbugs? Research suggests ‘drug sanctuaries’ in hospitals could be a promising solution.

A new study documents, for the first time, how the ability of bacteria to swap genetic material with each other can directly affect the emergence and spread of globally important infectious diseases.
To fully benefit from the vast quantities of data from TCGA, tools for easy data visualisation and analysis must be developed for use of the non-computational scientist. Our panel of experts discuss TCGA data and the tools needed to make sense of it.
13 European countries have committed to work together and ensure secure and authorised cross-border access to genomic and other health data.
In a rare move, the agency is looking into whether Southern Illinois University allowed experimental vaccine research to occur on university grounds—without safety precautions.
