  • Personalized Medicine Essay

    accordingly to target that specific mutation. The proliferation of bioinformatics and computational genomics plays a pivotal role in making this incentive effective. From extracting the raw data of DNA to understanding the genetic variations and clinical indication of these information, bioinformatics is leveraging these implications towards creating the personalized…

  • PDAC Biomarker Identification And Validation Analysis

    we will retrospectively test the application of selected biomarkers in PDAC diagnosis, treatment evaluation and disease prognosis. As biomarkers could be in the form of genomic abnormalities or transcriptional aberrations, corresponding methods will be used for validation, which we have previously reported (118-120). The ultimate objective is to develop biomarker detection protocols for cost-effective and non-invasive detection of clinical PDAC in a highly sensitive and specific fashion. Genomic…

  • Human Genome Project Pros And Cons

    testing, risk factors, and aiding in prevention. All of these factors influence healthcare and patients. Each person can find out if they are at risk for diseases, which can lead to preventative measures. For example, “tests have been developed to detect mutations for a handful of more complex conditions such as breast, ovarian, and colon cancers” (Human Genome Project and Beyond). This can influence a person’s life if they have family members with these genes by knowing what and how they can…

  • Genetic/Genomic Nursing Assessment

    The fields of genetics and genomics have made significant strides in the past ten years, and researches are applying the results of research to many areas of health care. Because disease risk and health conditions are influenced by elements of environment, lifestyle, and genetics, the nurse needs to consider these factors when assessing families for genetic risks (Williams, Cashion, Shekar, & Ginsburg, 2016). The nurse uses the information gathered from a family health history to identify…

  • Analysis Of Genomic DNA From Drosophila Melanogaster

    The study of inheritance at the at one of the smallest levels is referred to as molecular genetics and is utilized for many purposes, which include genes, genotyping, sequencing, cloning, etc. (Kelly, 2016). This allows for the ability to conduct DNA analysis revealing varying compositions and properties. For the following experiment the genomic DNA from Drosophila melanogaster, was utilized to be cloned and sequenced for either actin or 18s rRNA. In order to clone and sequence the specific…

  • Professional Investigator Of The Cannabis Genomic Research Project

    Learning information in class engaged and interested me throughout my academic career; however, the opportunity to discover new information through research is one of my most intellectually stimulating experiences. With my goal to learn as much as possible under Dr. Nolan Kane, the Professional Investigator of the Cannabis Genomic Research Initiative (CGRI), I have expanded my traditional bench lab experience to bioinformatics, hemp breeding, and leading designing and performing my own project…

  • Ebola Disease

    Today’s research is mostly focused on Zaire ebolavirus, the virulent virus responsible for the 2013 epidemic Ebola outbreak, which spread out of the original endemic area of West Africa. This review centralized research on the Zaire species. The focus was to explore three key areas; to better understand what is currently known and what should be further researched about the chain of Ebola virus infection, to describe the determinants involved in the EVD spread, and to discuss the susceptibility…

  • Family Sociological Theory Essay

    Family dynamics have changed tremendously throughout the years. The “traditional” family can no longer be defined and does not exist. The family structure is continually evolving. Community nursing involves considering three family social science theories during implementation of care. These three theories are family systems, family development and family bioecological systems. Some families share the same genes which has caused a rise in examining genomic health. This is an analysis of family…

  • Summary: Comparative Analysis Of Plant Genome

    Comparative Analysis of Plant Genome – An Overview Introduction Comparative genomics is used to study the similarities and differences in the structure and function of genome in living organisms. In the medical field, this information can help scientist to better understand the human genome. This allows them to develop new strategies to combat human disease. Comparative genomics is also a powerful tool to study the evolutionary relationship among organisms. We are able to identify genes that…

  • Linkage Analysis And Synthesis Essay

    Despite of its great successes, this approach has great weakness because it only captures limited allelic diversity existing in two parental lines and also limited in low genomic resolution (Borevitz and Nordborg 2003). To address this issue, GWAS utilizing diverse germplasm collections and recombination events that have been accumulated during the evolution and domestication has been proposed (Zhu et al. 2008). Without the involvements of costs and time for developing mapping populations, GWAS…
