Zooming in on cancer suspects

By Susan Buckles susanbuckles

Article by Barbara Toman Genetic testing is like security-camera video of a break-in, providing essential clues to identify a culprit. In certain cancers, the “culprit” might be a rearrangement in a person’s DNA, which genomic testing can capture. But sometimes, like too-fuzzy security footage, conventional genetic testing can’t provide a positive identification. For people with […]

Using CSI-type technology to unravel the source of bacteria

By Susan Buckles susanbuckles

Mayo Clinic laboratory workers have a new tool to perform high tech genetic sleuthing for the source of stubborn, sometimes life-threatening bacteria. Bacterial whole genome sequencing can trace individual isolates of bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, also known as Staph aureus, to determine if an outbreak is occurring. This common bacterium that has plagued health […]

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 […]

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 […]

Next-Generation Sequencing Settling Into the Laboratory

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

Thanks to next-generation sequencing, it’s now easier than ever to provide comprehensive genetic analysis to guide therapeutic decisions for patients with cancer, but it’s important to use resources wisely, says Linnea Baudhuin, Ph.D. Dr. Baudhuin is an associate professor of laboratory medicine and pathology at Mayo Medical School and co-director of the clinical genome sequencing […]
