Lee Hood’s vision for P4 medicine It was about six years ago I attended a Personalized Healthcare conference at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond Virginia, where Leroy […]


Nabsys single molecule mapping technology

Another interesting single-molecule technology is a company out of Providence (RI) called Nabsys. For several years I had heard the name involved in developing single-molecule sequencing technology, and this technology will start its initial product around genomic mapping, rather than sequencing. For background on genomic mapping and CNV analysis along […]


Oxford Nanopore at AGBT 2014 2

A few attending the Advances in Genome Biology and Technology meeting in Marco Island Florida (February 12 – 15 2014) have blogged about a presentation from David Jaffe (Broad Institute), presenting the first data the next-generation sequencing community has publicly seen from Oxford Nanopore Technologies. For those not familiar with […]
