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 […]
