California’s Massive Microarray SNP Genotyping Project Processed Genetic Data from More Than 100,000 Volunteers and Characterized 70 Billion Genetic Variants in 14 months

Faster sequencing speed and accuracy could fuel growth of biomarkers and lead to development of new medical laboratory tests and therapeutic drugs Trailblazing methods used to create a treasure trove of genetic data from 100,000 Californians could pay dividends for clinical laboratories and pathology groups if similar projects identify novel biomarkers and fuel the development of new clinical laboratory tests and therapeutic drugs. In fact, California is once again in the forefront, this time...

‘Genetic Testing Handbook’ Provides Physicians, Pathologists, and Clinical Lab Managers with Comprehensive Reference for Clinical Genome and Exome Sequencing

This new tool offers clinicians the dos and don’ts of genetic testing, what physicians need to know to do it properly  Clinical use of gene sequencing information has advanced to the point where a team of genetic experts has compiled and issued the Genetic Testing Handbook. The goal of the clinical genome and exome sequencing (CGES) handbook is to provide clinicians—including pathologists and clinical laboratory scientists—with a useful reference tool. The authors of the Genetic Testing...
