This method uses genetic markers
to investigate whether a risk factor can cause a particular disease.
Rody Sy's research identified specific genetic markers
that if present in a Filipino patient, may indicate that he will not respond to common drugs used in the treatment of high blood pressure, statins (used for lowering cholesterol) and anti-platelet agents (blood thinners like aspirin and clopidogrel).
In this study, we evaluated over 40,000 genes, or more specifically 'genetic markers
' in Marecha and Lassi camelsto discover significant associations with growth.
ExpresSeed (www.expresseedgenetics.com) offers affordable point-of-use devices that quickly detect and quantify specific genetic markers
and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in plant seeds and tissues.
These two databases use completely different systems of genetic markers
. The investigators report in a proof of principle with 872 people that for close relatives -- either sibling or parent-offspring pairs -- more than 30% can be accurately matched with the correct relative using nonoverlapping genetic markers
from the two different databases.
Premier and Progknowse plan to work with leading research universities and data scientists to develop real-time predictive algorithms that can be used by individual health systems to support care interventions for patients with specific genetic markers
. Progknowse will utilize the PremierConnect platform to access national data sets that include de-identified clinical outcomes data on approximately 45% of all patient discharges in the U.S.
In the future, a predictive test for the condition could become available thanks to a breakthrough by Australian researchers, who have identified certain genetic markers
that increase the risk of developing the disease.
Summary: Brisbane (Queensland) [Australia], May 15 (ANI); Scientists have discovered 19 new genetic markers
that could predict whether a person is at a higher risk of eye disease.
Mars Petcare said through its Wisdom Health business, is leading the discovery of new genetic markers
for pet health.
Sometimes, rather than figuring out a whole genome, it is easier to identify stretches of DNA known as "genetic markers
" that are associated with particular physical traits.
This is the largest set of lifespan-associated genetic markers
