Psychiatrist, geneticist, neurosurgeon and genome sequencers generate data on one patient,with big implications for care A multidisciplinary team led by a geneticist and psychiatrist from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory's (CSHL) Stanley Institute for Cognitive Genomics today publish a paper providing a glimpse of both the tremendous power and the current limitations of what is sometimes called "precision medicine." Precision medicine is an approach to diagnosis and treatment that tailors...

Despite the adoption of next-generation DNA sequencing (NGS) systems, Kalorama Information says that older capillary DNA sequencing systems remain in labs and are used consistently. More than one out of every four sequencers owned by labs surveyed is still a Sanger or capillary type system, and almost all are made by Life Technologies / Applied Biosystems. New York (PRWEB) October 02, 2013 Despite the adoption of next-generation DNA sequencing (NGS) systems, Kalorama Information says that...

As so many genome studies do, this study published online in the journal Nature Genetics began with a single patient and his parents who were in search of a diagnosis. The parents of this first patient sought genetic testing for Prader-Willi syndrome when he was only a year old, but the test, which was still in its infancy, came back negative. For the next 12 years, his parents were left in limbo. He had many features of the disease – including lack of muscle tone, feeding difficulties...

As gene sequencing technologies rapidly advance and new genomic data becomes available, so does the need for a better understanding and consensus on which gene changes are relevant to diagnosis and treatment. With a $8.4 million, four-year grant announced today from the National Human Genome Research Institute, researchers from Baylor College of Medicine and The Stanford University School of Medicine hope to address this need by creating a central resource. "The Stanford/Baylor effort...

Sequencing the DNA of an organism, whether human, plant, or jellyfish, has become a straightforward task, but assembling the information gathered into something coherent remains a massive data challenge. Researchers using computational resources at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, have created a faster and more effective way to assemble genomic information, while increasing performance. In a paper presented the past month at the 39th...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In conservation efforts aimed at protecting endangered species, a group of international scientists has mapped the genome of the Siberian, or Amur, tiger. The findings, published in Nature Communications, reveal clues to how the big cat evolved to become a top predator with a carnivorous diet and superior muscle strength. According to National Geographic, the Siberian tiger is the largest tiger subspecies. The animals weigh as much...
