Genomics through a lifetime

Aug 13, 2019 11:49 AM
A person’s genetic information generally doesn’t change over time, so the record that DNA sequencing provides can be accessed by a person at any stage of life

Anatomy of a gene

Aug 02, 2019 11:16 AM
Explore the key components of a gene – sections of DNA that are used to make proteins and other molecules that your body needs.

Types of genomic test

Jul 29, 2019 04:22 PM
Genomic testing involves looking across the genome for specific areas that might be relevant to a doctor or researcher
When a sperm and egg combine during fertilisation, they form a single cell that contains a person's full set of DNA

Patterns of inheritance

Jul 24, 2019 12:01 PM
Changes in our DNA can be inherited in different ways, depending on whether they affect one or both copies of a gene.
Critically assessing the scientific evidence base is a crucial step in determining which variants may be contributing to a patient's condition.
