Next generation sequencing – a game changer

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

Imagine scanning a page for errors manually one letter at a time, versus using a faster tool like spell check. That’s the difference between the first DNA sequencing methods and the new computerized machines known as next generation sequencing. It’s revolutionizing health care. Next generation sequencing technology enables geneticists to examine all of your 22,000 […]

For patients suffering from a neurological disorder such as Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, nerve pain (neuropathy) and dementia, the symptoms of these conditions can impact many aspects of daily life. Some patients with unexplained […]
