Genomics is a hugely powerful tool and the general population should know about it!
Scientists have never been certain how the half-genomes of the maternal egg cell and paternal sperm merge to form one human genome. Researchers this week described the enzyme SPRK1 as being critical to the process.

The catalogue, Human Vaginal Non-Redundant gene catalogue (VIRGO), has been released publicly and can be used to facilitate an in-depth understanding of how the vaginal micro-organisms affect women’s health
Pharmacogenetics (PGx) is the study of how an individual’s genetic makeup affects their drug response and metabolism. An understanding of PGx could help clinicians make prescribing decisions and has the potential to be implemented in routine care worldwide. PGx has understandably been gaining traction and support, with pharmacogenomic elements being implemented into many international Genomic studies.
