New research suggests that as long as we hit the grand old age of 105, we statistically could live forever due to “mortality plateau”.
The advancement of sequencing technology has had the singe biggest effect on genomics research. As it develops further, so does the scope of genomic research and applications.
Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute is pushing for the use of genetic testing to transform treatment of breast cancer with the Personalised Breast Cancer Programme.
The California State Legislature has approved a budget including $2 million for a pilot project to fund clinical whole genome sequencing as a first line diagnostic test.
DNA is often referred to as the blueprint of life, however, scientists have for the first time discovered a microbe that uses two different translations of the DNA code at random.
George Church talks about his disappointment with the Human Genome Project, the blistering price/performance improvements in both DNA synthesis and sequencing, and CRISPR’s strength and weaknesses, in addition to the improvements he hopes to see in its successors.
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.
People’s medical and health history might become more than just a blueprint for doctor’s actions, now that blockchain start-up Nebula Genomics, and Hong Kong-based Longenesis are partnering up.
