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

By Sharon Rosen 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 – a game changer

By Sharon Rosen 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 […]

Mayo Clinic Joins the National Microbiome Initiative

By Jeff Briggs Jeff Briggs (@JeffreyBriggs)

The microbiome — which includes a community of trillions of bacteria living within our gut — has been called one of the next big frontiers in medicine. In recent years, research has shown that the bacteria in our gut plays a critical role in our overall health. The balance of good and bad bacteria can […]

Next-Generation Sequencing: Targeted Panels Versus Whole Exome Sequencing

By Jeff Briggs 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-Gen Sequencing For Hereditary Colon Cancer

By AJ Montpetit AJ Montpetit (@ajmontpetit)

Matthew Ferber, Ph.D., Director of Mayo Clinic’s Molecular Genetics Laboratory, discusses Mayo Clinic’s Hereditary Colon Cancer Multi-Gene Panel, which uses next generation sequencing (NGS), array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH), and other technologies to evaluate for germline mutations in 17 genes known to be associated with an increased risk for colon cancer development.
