Mayo Clinic launches first-in-world mate-pair sequencing test

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

Many families are on a medical journey to find answers to a loved one’s undiagnosed disease. This can be painfully frustrating, expensive, and time-consuming. Now, a new test from Mayo Clinic hopes to help patients who may be at a diagnostic “dead end” with other genetic testing. The first-in-the-world mate-pair sequencing test identifies chromosome alterations […]

Precision Medicine: From Double Helix to Health Care

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

  When U.S. President Barack Obama announced his Precision Medicine Initiative in 2015, he called it health care tailored to the individual, an effort to revolutionize how we improve health and treat disease. Precision Medicine was declared an innovative approach that takes into account individual differences in people’s genes, environments, and lifestyles. It gives medical […]

Next-Generation Sequencing: Targeted Panels Versus Whole Exome Sequencing

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

  Next-generation sequencing is becoming more prominent in the clinical laboratory, something we reported on recently on the Center for Individualized Medicine blog. With its unprecedented throughput, scalability, and speed, next-generation sequencing enables researchers to study biological systems at a level never before possible. Today’s complex genomic research questions demand a depth of information beyond […]

Case for ‘Liquid Biopsy’ to Track Patient’s Cancer Building One Study at a Time

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

Circulating tumor DNA in blood could inform physicians on best treatments for individual patients A new study published last week of patients with breast cancer adds to the growing evidence that detecting cancer DNA circulating in the blood can guide patient treatment. A team of researchers, including scientists from the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), has […]

Patient and Public Symposium Recap

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

Why is family history important when discussing genomic medicine? What does right drug, right dose at the right time mean? Don’t doctors always do that? Why is my DNA important to understanding and treating my father’s diabetes and my brother’s depression? How can pharmacogenomics help with my mother’s cancer treatment? What the heck does any […]

What Is Epigenomics And How Is It Helping in the Fight Against Cancer?

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

How is it that identical twins share exactly the same DNA and yet can exhibit dramatic differences in the way that they live and grow, and what illnesses they acquire as they age? It turns out that cells read the genetic code in DNA more like a script to be interpreted than a mold that […]
