  • Should you get sequenced? Not all bad genes predict disease

    “What we really don’t know yet is whether the predictive aspects of the genome are going to turn out to be beneficial or potentially harmful” “As we roll out genomic medicine we are fighting against this society-wide misconception that having the bad gene means you’...

  • Stephen Friend: The hunt for "unexpected genetic heroes"

    What can we learn from people with the genetics to get sick — who don't? With most inherited diseases, only some family members will develop the disease, while others who carry the same genetic risks dodge it. Stephen Friend suggests we start studying those family members who stay healthy. Hear a...

  • Is there a list of human SNPs associated with a disease?

    Looking for list of human SNPs associated with a disease? We need to evaluate a large number of human SNPs for their possible association with a disease. So far, the closest I've seen is SNPedia, but a database would be more helpful.
