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 […]

What Is Chromatin Immunoprecipitation Sequencing (ChIP-Seq)

Chromatin Immunoprecipitation sequencing (ChIP-Seq) determines DNA binding sites for particular proteins on a genome. 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 […]

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 […]
