iGenomX, in collaboration with MindCrowd, applied their RIPTIDETM library preparation technology to an Alzheimer’s research study cohort. MindCrowd utilizes online-based Paired-Associates Learning (PAL) task programs for Alzheimer’s research that allows for web-based memory assessment of more than 1,000,000 participants. Participants from this assessment phase were criteria selected for DNA samples and genotyped using RIPTIDETM High […]

It seems like eons ago that the nation saw its first cases of COVID-19. In the early stages of the outbreak, the coronavirus was all anyone could talk about. Questions like, “How infectious is it?”, “What are the symptoms?”, and, “Who is at risk?” were at the forefront of our thoughts and conversations. As time […]
If you could unravel your DNA and see if your genes indicate a high risk for certain diseases, would you do it? What if this knowledge meant you could make lifestyle changes and reduce your risk? Genomic medicine makes this possible, and it’s opening up an entire world of possibilities for our health. Computer technology […]
The new strain of coronavirus known as SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19 is a highly contagious yet highly selective respiratory virus that continues to puzzle researchers and medical professionals. At first, it seemed as though only the elderly and those with underlying health conditions were at risk of developing severe symptoms and dying from the virus — […]
To the knowledge of scientists and the CDC, the family of coronaviruses has been around since the mid-1960s. One of the most deadly of these viruses came about in the early 2000s when Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, otherwise known as SARS, emerged in China. A decade later, the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) developed in […]
Your DNA determines your hair color, nose shape, and eye color, so it makes sense that your genes play a role in your weight as well. Part of your ability to lose weight is encoded in your DNA, which is why everyone reacts differently to diets and workouts. Harvard Health has found that each person’s […]

While you may enjoy devouring an entire plate of hot wings in one sitting, your eating companion may not even be able to put pepper on their food without turning red. This begs an interesting question: Are we born able to enjoy spicy foods or is this […]
