‘Barcoding’ Cells in Nematodes Could Bring Advances and New Medical Laboratory Tools for Treatment of Cancer and Other Chronic Diseases

Ongoing research at the University of Washington promises new methods for identifying and cataloging large numbers of cells quickly, which could lead to more individualized treatments in support of precision medicine initiatives Researchers have found a new method for identifying specific cell types by groups, a breakthrough that some experts say could lead to new and more accurate methods for diagnosing and treating disease in individual patients, and new tools for fighting cancer and other...

New York Genome Center Opens New Gene Sequencing and Bioinformatics Facility in Downtown Manhattan

The Center brings together scientists from around the city to translate promising research into medical innovations to treat, prevent and manage disease Gene sequencing is going big time in the Big Apple. Last month the New York Genome Center (NYGC) moved into a state-of-the-art, 170,000-square-foot genome sequencing and biometrics research building. New York City is putting down its marker to claim a leading role in advancing genetic knowledge. What makes this development notable for the...
