Extraction process of DNA in hair from a deceased relative to understand how this genome sequencing can inform health risks in living relatives.
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.
The way I understand Personal Genomics is when one sequences/genotypes his/her genome outside of the clinical setting, usually using direct-to-consumer genetic test providers. The usefulness of personal genomics data is being disputed among clinicians when applied to healthy individuals, that is, individuals that are not affected by a […]
Finally, I was able to find the appropriate means to send the fecal sample to Hong Kong, for the BGI to sequence my faeces. All DNA contained in my faeces will be sequenced, to produce what it is called a metagenomics analysis. This includes the identification of every […]
Download page: http://manuelcorpas.com/five-family-relatives-genome-download/ After some deliveration and with informed consent from all family members involved, four relatives in my family, Mom, Dad, Sister and Aunt are releasing their 23andMe genomes together with mine to the public domain. A page has been created that describes the origins, the genealogic […]
