Life Science Research: DNA Sequencing
DNA sequencing is the single greatest scientific breakthrough to have occurred in the world of bioinformatics and genetics. Determining the order of nucleotides in a DNA sequence has opened numerous doors in preventative health care.
Patients can receive a personalized genetics map from online test labs for less than $200. Labs like 23AndMe.com answer questions on hereditary conditions and predispositions to illnesses.
Recent advances in DNA testing mean that lives can potentially be saved if researchers catch these links and red flags quickly.
