Survey Says: Patients Want their Own Genomic Data

Posted on Tue, Jun 09, 2015 @ 03:00 PM

We suspected this all along: people want to be engaged with their own healthcare. Our suspicions were confirmed by researchers in the U.S. in a study published in the European Journal of Human Genetics, as well as by researchers in the U.K. via survey results presented at the annual meeting of the European Society of Human Genetics.

4 Critical Steps for Biobanking on the Path to Precision Medicine

Posted on Tue, Oct 08, 2013 @ 06:00 AM

Precision medicine is upon us and it is more than the simple use of information to create drugs and diagnostics that are unique to a single patient. Precision Medicine identifies patients who are more susceptible to certain diseases, who will respond to treatments differently and whose diseases or conditions may progress on a different course than others in the general population.

DNA Day 2012 is Here: Some Thoughts

Posted on Thu, Apr 19, 2012 @ 06:00 AM

April is a good month to step back and think a little bit about one of my favorite subjects: DNA. April 20th is National DNA Day. Organized by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), the day commemorates the completion of the Human Genome Project in April 2003, and the discovery of DNA's double helix. I would like to share a few of my thoughts on this incredible and still mysterious molecule.

Genomic Research: Whose Data Is It? What's Important?

Posted on Thu, Dec 15, 2011 @ 06:00 AM

Admittedly, I am a bit behind in my journals, so I only recently read articles in Nature entitled Secrets of the Human Genome Disclosed and Genomes on Prescription. The first article was about geneticist Ghoulson Lyon, who presented a research study at a conference on a family suffering from an unknown, apparently genetic, disease. He was trying to find genetic variants associated with the disease, which caused some male children in the family to die before they reached their first birthday.
