Fact Sheet: Genome, DNA, RNA

What is a genome? A genome is the complete set of DNA (or RNA in RNA viruses) of an organism. It is sufficient to build and maintain that organism. Each nucleated cell in the body contains this same set of genetic material. In humans, a copy of the entire genome consists of more than 3 […]

Genomics—Forensic Age Identification

Summary: a DNA methylation age inference method, combined with Sequenom MassARRAY technology, can reduce the error of the age to 4.7 years. Age estimation is one of the most important topics in the field of forensic medicine. Especially for juvenile delinquency, highly corrupt bones of the dead and nameless corpse, it can provide the scope […]

Three Companies for Exome Capture Efficiency Evaluation

Whole exome sequencing (WES) is now being used more and more in the field of research and diagnosis. Researchers are expected to study the entire coding regions of known genes with adequate sequencing depth and coverage. Currently a large number of exome capture platforms on the market have there respective advantages and some differences in […]
