Dr Mariam Fida, Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis Department Supervisor and Genetics Consultant, announced that the Princess Al Jawhara Centre is one of the few centres which will provide a special unit for the genetic profiling
of embryos prior to pregnancy starting December, revealing that this unit is an important tool to limiting the spread of genetic diseases in countries of the Gulf.
The ability to translate genetic profiling
into tailored preventive care plans for individuals is still years away, but with the study by (Hongmei) Nan et al, the road, arduous as it may be, is more clearly illuminated.
This powerful informatics solution will pair data from various comprehensive genetic profiling
studies, such as somatic mutations from next generation sequencing technologies, with copy number from the OncoScan assay for solid tumors or the CytoScan assay for liquid tumors, and result in a single user friendly report with relevant and dynamically updated knowledge.
The informatics solution will be able to combine results from multiple genetic profiling
studies, including somatic mutations from next-generation sequencing (NGS) platforms, with copy number from the OncoScan assay for solid tumours or the CytoScan assay for liquid tumours, providing one user-friendly report with relevant and dynamically updated data.
As the Journal describes, genetic profiling
is already helping researchers to diagnose rare or mysterious diseases, and it also helps other health specialists to tailor drug therapies for advanced cancer patients.
Their collaboration since 2007 has enabled the exhumation and identification of missing persons via genetic profiling
STOCKHOLM -- Genetic profiling
can identify the roughly one-fourth of patients with stable coronary artery disease who will not obtain clinical benefit from ACE inhibitor therapy, as well as a far larger group of superresponders.
His former trainer Jim Bolger, one of the partnership of breeders who owns him, is also a partner in Equinome, the company formed with Dr Emmeline Hill to provide the genetic profiling
service on the commercial market.
Scientists have developed a test to more accurately predict the merits of dairy cattle
Although in its infancy, genetic profiling
offers the promise of identifying high-risk men early on, potentially allowing for prevention strategies and earlier intervention.
