Rebranding this blog to Personal Genomics.Zone: new mission and values!
DNA sequencing of my relative who passed away 4 years ago.
Why is not personal genomics having a tangible effect in the health of the normal population? Read here why.
Presentation to be given in Barcelona at the NGS’17 conference on Repositive.
Genome blogging refers to the sharing of experiences, results and data relative to a person’s genome. Normally, the information shared belongs to the blogger him/herself, but at times it belongs to other people (related or not) who provide their explicit consent to share personal data and views. Genome […]
The plummeting prices in sequencing has triggered an exponential growth in the generation of genomic datasets. Currently it is very difficult for search engines such as Google to index data in the biomedical domain. How do we make data from this domain findable by search engines? A group […]
Suzie Thorpe from Cambridge Radio 105 spoke to me about my work, my novel ‘Perfect DNA’ and how genomic testing could impact people and their families.
