Ge­nomic Se­quenc­ing

Good Health Choices - - BE INFORMED -

Our DNA is so im­por­tant in de­ter­min­ing per­sonal health so­lu­tions, and ge­nomic anal­y­sis is what gives us that clear pic­ture, so we can de­vise a plan that works for each of us as an in­di­vid­ual. While the Hu­man Genome Project took from 1990 to 2003 to com­plete, things have moved much faster in re­cent times and now a com­pany called Ox­ford Nanopore has de­vel­oped a hand­held de­vice for $1000 that can se­quence the hu­man genome in real time. A fu­ture where per­son­alised medicine is the norm is sud­denly look­ing a lot closer.
