How can DNA sequencing be applied to the medical field?

What is genome sequencing? If you could study the map of your patients and foresee the pitfalls and obstacles – if you could navigate them and make your patients’ life easier and safer – would you? Genome sequencing can break open the cell membranes that exist in a sample of your patient’s blood or saliva […]

Clinical Whole Exome Sequencing

What is Whole Exome Sequencing? If you’re trying to find a cause for your patients’ symptoms, clinical whole exome sequencing (WES) can reveal the origins of a genetic trait or illness. How does it work? An exon, or “expressed region,” is the coding part of DNA and ultimately gets translated to protein. Using saliva, blood, […]

How is NGS Different from Sanger Sequencing?

Introduction Sequencing DNA involves biochemical processes to ascertain the order (sequence) of nucleotides of DNA strands. Maxam-Gilbert and Sanger methods were developed over 40 years ago, but the Sanger method soon dominated the DNA sequencing arena. With this method, DNA is repeatedly copied resulting in DNA fragments of varying lengths. The ends of each fragment […]
