Latest Human genome Stories
IBM said this week that its Watson supercomputer that grew to fame on the TV game show Jeopardy is going to be used to help clinicians tailor treatments for cancer patients.
The massive genome of the loblolly pine—around seven times bigger than the human genome—is the largest genome sequenced to date and the most complete conifer genome sequence ever published.
A great deal of research has been focused on the factors that have influenced the human genome since the end of the last Ice Age. An international team of scientists has analyzed ancient DNA from skeletons, finding that natural selection has had a major effect...
Researchers from the University of Adelaide's School of Dentistry say a visit to the dentist could eventually require a detailed look at a patient’s genes.
Create, collaborate and educate yourself about the future in Genomics. Bangalore, India (PRWEB) March 05, 2014 Asia Knowledge Associates is proudly organizing
In December 2013, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the first high-throughput DNA sequencer (also known commonly as a "gene sequencer"), an instrument that allows laboratories to quickly and efficiently sequence a person's DNA for genetic testing, medical diagnoses and perhaps one day, customized drug therapies.
Over the years, the cost of sequencing an entire human genome has dropped, but analyzing three billion base pairs of genetic information from a single genome can take months. A team of researchers is now reporting that supercomputers can dramatically speed up that process.
A multi-institutional team of researchers this week published in the journal Science a study identifying, dating and characterizing the genetic mixing between populations around the world. Along with the study, the team released an interactive map detailing the histories of this genetic mixing.
Data from 2,000 cancer genomes to be jointly analyzed using uniform algorithms. Los Gatos, CA (PRWEB) February 12, 2014 Annai Systems Inc., a provider
