The OMICS Universe And Its Future – The Medical Futurist

The OMICS acronym crawled into the hive mind of the life science community as the Marvel universe onto the movie screens: slowly but successfully. Genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, methylomics or surfaceomics occupy a growing field of research in systems biology lately. It will be an even more significant strand in the future with practical ramifications,

Pharmacogenomics: The Science of Personalizing Drugs Based On DNA

We strongly believe that only digital health can bring healthcare into the 21st century and make patients the point-of-care. Individuals share about 99.97 percent of their DNA and only the remaining 0.03 percent is responsible for the differences in skin, hair or eye color, height, shoe size or sunspots. Scientists discovered somewhat recently that our

Human genome could contain up to 20 percent fewer genes, researchers reveal

A new study reveals that up to 20 percent of genes classified as coding (those that produce the proteins that are the building blocks of all living things) may not be coding after all because they have characteristics that are typical of non-coding or pseudogenes (obsolete coding genes). The work once again highlights doubts about

Genomic sequencing within 3 days for healthcare transformation

The Scottish Genomes Partnership (SGP), a collaboration of the country’s universities, is playing a key role in the transformation of healthcare. Findings from the project, which began in January 2015, are already helping to improve diagnoses of patients in the Scottish NHS, as well as advancing the understanding of rare and common diseases including cancer.What’s

Gene-editing technique cures genetic disorder in utero

Researchers have for the first time used a gene editing technique to successfully cure a genetic condition in a mouse model. Their findings present a promising new avenue for research into treating genetic conditions during fetal development. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and Yale University have for the first time used a gene editing technique
