Will Genome Sequencing Make Us Smarter About Dealing With Diseases in Our Genes—Or Just More Anxious?
Vit D deficiency linked to cancer, chronic pain, seasonal effective disorder, & autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, MS, & lupus. 70 % of children & adults in the US are vitamin D deficient.
100,000 Genomes Project leads to first rare disease diagnoses
100,000 Genomes Project leads to first rare disease diagnoses | The men are benefiting from ground breaking developments in whole genome sequencing, which will now allow them to receive effective, personalised treatment. Their diagnoses should also prevent future generations who share their DNA from living with uncertainty, should they exhibit similar symptoms.
An international team of scientists has sequenced the complete genome of the woolly mammoth. A US team is already attempting to study the animals' characteristics by inserting mammoth genes into elephant stem cells.
