Effect of WGS on clinical management in acutely ill infants

Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) shows promise as a first-line genetic test for acutely ill infants. However, before wide-spread adoption and implementation, […]

Does genomics hold the key for African cancer care?

Researchers recently explored whether the genetic landscape of tumours could be captured through blood collection in African women with breast […]

Longevity pathways identified in exome analysis of centenarians

Non-human model organisms have provided evidence to suggest that rare protein-coding variants in pathways linked to longevity can guard against […]

Loss of transcription factor alters chromatin accessibility

Researchers have discovered that chromatin accessibility is heavily influenced by a key transcription factor that is linked to cancer. The […]

A guide to spatial transcriptomics

Today, multi-omics studies have been conducted extensively, revealing information about gene expression changes, cellular function and homeostasis. As a result, […]

A guide to proteomics

The term ‘proteomics’ was first coined in 1996 by Marc Wilkins, used to define the large-scale analysis of all the […]
