DNA Day 2019

2019-04-25T15:18:44+00:00

It’s DNA Day 2019! DNA Day commemorates the completion of the Human Genome Project in April 2003 and the discovery of the double helix of DNA in 1953. In honor of the day, we took a closer look at the ~20,000 protein-coding genes in our DNA. We’ve been able to associate just [...]

Rare diseases
in genomic literature

2019-03-04T16:30:01+00:00

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has paved the way for a remarkable global surge in discovery and research in the field of genomics, and particularly on rare disease. Rare genetic conditions pose a significant burden on individuals and families, and such research efforts offer a glimmer of hope for the discovery of novel therapies and definitive diagnoses [...]

Emedgene raises $6 million to scale genomics-based care with AI

2019-02-19T15:20:00+00:00

We’re very pleased to announce our recent fundraising round, led by OliveTree Ventures. Although sequencing costs are below $1000, interpretation is still a major bottleneck to widespread adoption of NGS testing and that’s where we’re focusing our efforts. Here’s the full press announcement, detailing the whys and hows: February 19th, 2019, Palo Alto, California -- [...]

2018 in Genomics: May you live in interesting times

2019-01-02T13:57:50+00:00

May you live in interesting times seems like an apt description for the year we’ve had in genomics. Significant advances in science, alongside ethical breaches and major privacy concerns. All the while, the sequencing march forward continues with more interest from countries, consumers and more insurance coverage.I polled the Emedgene team on the most significant [...]

AI & Reanalysis: Close the gap on your past open cases

2019-01-25T15:23:32+00:00

Introduction Reanalysis. With demand for testing accelerating, this is quickly becoming a painful topic for labs. Every patient matters, and deserves the latest science can offer. But reanalyzing an ever-growing number of cases is unsustainable in the long run. If 50% of your cases are unsolved, and you revisit them every 6 or 12 months, [...]
