  • Is reference genome necessary for gene expression study in transcriptome sequencing or for variant discovery in genome sequencing?

    Like in case of plant genomes where nature of genome is too complex and huge in size to accomplish complete de novo assembly by current sequencing technology. What would be alternate solution? Can we live in reference free world?

  • Bioinformatics approach to Boar Taint

    Meat products obtained from intact male pigs often produce offensive smell or odour which is recognized as a complex genetic trait called boar taint.Androstenone and Skatole in the fat primarily cause boar taint. Metabolism of androstenone and sex steroids share a common pathway which makes ...

  • 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’...
