Race and Predisposition to Disease

Introduction Interdisciplinary efforts over several decades have provided intriguing information regarding the factors that contribute to racial differences in health status and outcomes. Even with this information on hand, challenges remain regarding improved characterization of these various biological and environmental factors. Advances in genomic studies have provided some of the valuable tools and data needed […]

Next Generation Sequencing Could Dramatically Impact Life Expectancy

Introduction A Centers for Disease Control website provides a definition for life expectancy as “the average number of years that a hypothetical group of infants would live at each attained age if the group was subject, throughout its lifetime, to the age-specific death rates prevailing for the actual population in a given year” (1). It […]

Chromatin Immunoprecipitation-sequencing (ChIP-seq)

Chromatin Immunoprecipitation assays have the ability to capture an image of specific protein to DNA interactions that are occurring in a system and process these interactions using quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), ChIP-chip, or next generation sequencing (NGS). When paired with next generation sequencing specifically, ChIP-seq is a powerful way to identify genome-wide DNA binding […]

Sequencing Data to Develop Recombinant Vaccines

Introduction Eradication and prevention of infectious diseases are achieved most often via vaccination. The common or traditional vaccines are made using the actual pathogen material, such as modified live or killed (inactivated) viruses. The use of these types of vaccines is sometimes associated with serious side effects. For some infectious agents, it is often difficult […]

Advances in Microbiome Diagnostics

Introduction The organisms that are a part of our normal biology are essential for our survival and well-being. The genetic material of these organisms collectively makes up the human microbiome. However, there are many scientists that use the term microbiome interchangeably with microbiota (the actual normal microorganism in a particular environment, such as the human […]

The Promise and Security Risks of using Cloud-Based Informatics Solutions for Human Genomic Data Analysis

Introduction The ability for medical and research scientists around the globe to share data has enhanced the progress of medical discovery and healthcare delivery. Instant access to information via cloud-based technology by researchers and healthcare providers allows more time spent acting on and processing data. However, large bodies of data (aka “big data”) generated through […]

The Top Five Genome Conferences In The World

The emergence and growth of whole genome sequencing technologies, and the resulting immense database generated, requires that scientists and medical professionals learn more about the powerful tools available to them. These tools give scientists the ability to interpret and apply the information and are becoming increasingly available. Genomic technologies have bolstered the power of personalized […]
