Individualizing Medicine 2014: Day Three Recap

By Sam Smith scolbysmith

The final day of the Individualizing Medicine 2014 Conference kicked off with one of the pioneers of genomics taking the stage. Having founded the Baylor College of Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center in 1997, Richard Gibbs led one of the five main groups that completed the Human Genome Project. Gibbs discussed his past, present and […]

Individualizing Medicine 2014: Day Two Recap

By Sam Smith scolbysmith

Day two of the Individualizing Medicine 2014 Conference dispelled any notion of a conference on genomics being a gathering of humorless, stuffy scientists talking about the minutiae of genetic alphabet soup. Bob Dylan and Fifty Shades of Grey, Clint Eastwood and Dr. Seuss were intermixed in with informative talks that centered on the power of […]

The Promise of Whole-Exome Sequencing

By AJ Montpetit ajmontpetit

Until recently, polygenic (complex) diseases were beyond the capacity of first-generation sequencing, but next-generation sequencing (NGS) in making exploration of genetic etiology of complex diseases a possibility for the first time. NGS is a rapidly growing area of genomics and gene sequencing, and the rapid changes hold more promise for exome decoding than ever before. […]
