National Human Genome Sciences Institute today launched a multi-center initiative to research how variations in DNA sequences confer disease risks.
Old protocol ‘required instruments that cost as much as my condo and required pretty specialized training to run,’ research coordinator says.
Sequencing expert Deborah Nickerson, from UW Medicine Genome Sciences and Brotman Baty Institute for Precision Medicine, explains initial findings.
The dynamics of gene expression across the genome can be characterized as a cell develops, and as it responds to challenges.
sci-Plex profiles gene expression in thousands of individual cells when a sample is perturbed; the technology holds promise for cancer, infection, prenatal medicine and other research.
Your genes could help lead to better care for a patient in the future.
