Foreseeing the Future of Vaccines

By Jeff Briggs Jeff Briggs (@JeffreyBriggs)

Is there a new “omics” coming to health care? Here at the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine we have epigenomics and pharmacogenomics. We have clinomics, and faithful readers of this blog know we love discussing genomics. Now, doctors at Mayo Clinic are pioneering a new field of research called vaccinomics. Their hope is to […]

Individualizing Medicine 2015 Comes to an End

By Jeff Briggs Jeff Briggs (@JeffreyBriggs)

Over 800 people from 31 states and 10 countries attended this year’s Individualizing Medicine Conference: From Promise to Practice. They heard presentations from over 125 experts about how individualized medicine can fulfill the promise of moving from the laboratory bench of the research to the bedside of the patient. After an opening symposium for the […]

Mayo Clinic Team Shares Comparison of Sequencing, Array Methods for DNA Methylation Profiling

By Jeff Briggs Jeff Briggs (@JeffreyBriggs)

What are the biological mechanisms that switch genes on and off? Think of it like this: In identical twins, why does one twin develop cancer or rheumatoid arthritis or diabetes and the other doesn’t? Their DNA is exactly the same. That’s epigenomics at play. While the DNA is the same, the network of chemical switches […]

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

By Jeff Briggs 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 […]

KLF14 and SK1 Lipid Signaling

By AJ Montpetit AJ Montpetit (@ajmontpetit)

  Research from the Epigenomics Program was recently published,  in coordination with the Gastroenterology Research Unit, Departments of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Physiology and Biophysics, and Medicine, focusing on the KLF14 gene, which has elicited attention as master regulator of lipid metabolism. Sphingosine kinase 1 (SK1) is an FGF-inducible gene responsible for generation of sphingosine-1-phosphate, […]

Individualized Medicine 101: Epigenomics

By Mystery User

    For patients who exhaust all traditional cancer therapies, pinpointing new molecular targets for therapy requires that we examine not only the differences between their “normal” DNA and the mutated DNA of their tumor, but also other factors that influence how genes are expressed. These “other factors” are proteins that chemically modify either the […]

Eric Schmidt, Google Chairman, Sees Genetics as “Unfathomably Important”

By Mystery User

Not one to shy from giving bold predictions, Google Chairman and Mayo Clinic Trustee Eric Schmidt sat down with Bloomberg TV to talk on trends to watch for in 2014. One area of interest was the ability to have your personal genomic sequence available to you. The trove of medically relevant information stored in your […]
