A Faster and Cheaper Way
TGen investigators devise faster, cheaper way of analyzing the human genome is a EurekAlert article. It reports that investigators at the Translational Genomics Research Institute had found a faster and less expensive means of locating genes important to human health. It involves genomic indexing to identify genetic variations. Cuts of up to ninety percent of what currently is required to sequence genes to analyze Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) may be possible according to Dr. David Craig, the associate director of TGen's Neurogenomics Division.
