The development of the first automated DNA sequencers completely revolutionized the field of DNA sequencing and, eventually, made it possible to publish the first draft sequences of the human genome. Since then, a whole host of companies have developed their own approaches to DNA sequencing, resulting in a market that is filled with different possibilities […]
Pioneering Survey of Clinical NGS QC Practices Proves Need for Purpose-Built QC Solutions to Standardise Industry
The QC Survey, Conducted by SeraCare and GenomeWeb, Highlights Industry-Wide Variability of Testing Methods and Results
To find out which DNA repair enzymes are critical to homology-directed repair after CRISPR cutting, researchers have knocked out, one at a time, more than 2,000 genes known or suspected to be involved in DNA repair, a function critical to a healthy cell.
With artificial intelligence, machines can now examine thousands of medical images for signs of disease. Will this technology replace doctors – or work side by side with them?
The strengths of blockchain technologies could help address the weaknesses of health care systems to store and secure medical records.
The debate about the pros and cons of genetically screening embryos is deeply entrenched. Perhaps we should let couples decide?
Scientists have discovered that CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing can cause greater genetic damage in cells than was previously thought.
