Rare Cell Types Were Discoverd by Single-cell mRNA Sequencing

Recently, researchers form Netherlands announced that they developed a new algorithm named RaceID and conbined this RaceID with sequencing datas of transcriptome, then they found some rare cell types in intestine. This is meaningful for our understanding of tissue biology and the formation of cells in tissues. Traditional methods of finding cells or isolating subpopulation […]

Obesity Related Genes

Yesterday one of my friends complained again that she had gain ten pounds last month. She said she was 167 pounds now and sometimes she even feels hard to walk. Obesity is a global problem. Many people is struggling to loose weight but still can not find an effective way. They keep diet, exercise, and […]

$120 Million-Investment For CRISPR Technology From Bill Gates and Other 13 Investors

An article published in Forbes in the morning yesterday is undoubtedly a big bomb for biotechnology. Our genius IT CEO Bill Gates and his friends decided to put their hands to “The Genesis Engine”, the new favorite of DNA editing in the lab, CRISPR. They poured $120 Million, as the title of this article said, […]

Arguments about CRISPR technology: A Revolution of Science

CRISPR topics are hot again now. Since the very beginning researchers found CRISPR sequences in December 1987, it has been widely used in many fields. The credit is obviously. But this year researchers reported that they had edited human embryos with CRISPR, which triggered an ethical debate. CRISPR, the full name is clustered regularly interspaced […]

Modification of T Cells by Using Cas9 Ribonucleoproteins Provides Hope for Treatment of Cancer

Recently, scientists from San Francisco successfully modified T cells by using Cas9 RNPs, and this thesis was published on PNAS on July 27, 2015. You may have question about this: What is T cell? And why this research has great significance on diseases like cancer and HIV? Scientists have explained everything in their articles. What […]

GEN Prediction: Next-generation Sequencing Market Will Reach $4.9 Billion in 2020

Sequencing technology has experienced a very long time, the next generation sequencing (NGS) radically change the way the human genomes are sequenced.IQ4I Research & Consultancy analysis suggests that global NGS market is expected to reach $4.892 billion by 2020 at a CAGR (a compound annual growth rate) of 20.7%. Among the global NGS market, instruments […]

The Latest Research Progresses in Genomics

The 21st century is a biological and information age which marks that genomics research has shifted from the structural genomics to the functional genomics. Additionally, as for the study of gene functions, researchers refer to the large-scale and massive analysis instead of a single gene. Recently, the latest research progresses in genomics have aroused a […]

Finally! CD Genomics Has Its Own Blog

Interesting facts about Genomics From the Greek ΓΕΝ (gen), “gene” (gamma, epsilon, nu, epsilon) means “become, create, creation, birth”. While the word genome from the German Genom, attributed to Hans Winkler was in use in English as early as 1926, the term genomics was coined by Tom Roderick, a geneticist at the Jackson Laboratory (Bar […]

Whole Genome Sequencing is Entering Into Clinical Application

A study by researchers from the University of Oxford and the DNA sequencing company makes doctors a step closer to use whole genome sequencing to diagnose and treat patients with genetic diseases. This project showed that genome sequencing provided definitive diagnoses for up to 60% of patients with some types of genetic disorder. The success […]
