Genomics and Breast Cancer: Case Study

Meet Alicia. She’s 67, vibrantly healthy, and loving life. But 12 years ago she lived in constant fear. That’s when her mother died from estrogen receptor positive (ER+) breast cancer. Alicia was told it was not the hereditary kind, so not to worry and there was nothing she could do except to get regular mammograms

Beginner’s Guide To Genomic Medicine

Genomics studies the interactions of the environment and our DNA. With 20,000–25,000 genes that contain over 3 billion base pairs of DNA, our genome provides the blueprint for everything that happens in our bodies. Genomic Tests Genomic testing starts with collecting a small DNA sample with a simple cheek swab. At our certified laboratory, we detect

Genomic Medicine Is Precision Medicine

Analysis of a patient’s unique DNA profile provides detailed insight into the root causes of disease, guiding individual paths to optimal health. Genomics is revolutionizing an ever growing number of medical disciplines, leveraging vast amounts of previously unavailable data to improve diagnosis, prevention and treatment strategies tailored to each individual’s unique biochemistry. This is precision

Introduction to Genomics

A genome is a complete set of genetic instructions. With 20,000–25,000 genes that contain over 3 billion base pairs of DNA, our genome provides the blueprint for everything that happens in our bodies. Genomics identifies and analyzes variations in the DNA called single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs, pronounced “snips”). Over time, a small change can have a

Migraines

Migraine headaches are one of the most common neurological disorders worldwide, affecting between 10–20% of the adult population. Migraines are caused by an interaction between environmental and genetic factors. Genomic studies have dramatically increased our understanding of migraine pathophysiology. Evaluating a person’s genomic profile identifies susceptibility to developing migraines, and enables evidence-based, personalized prevention and treatment strategies.

Men’s Health

Heart disease, diabetes, prostate cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases rank at the top of men’s health concerns. A multitude of factors are involved, and the fact that every person is genetically different adds to this complexity. Analyzing a patient’s unique genomic profile is a highly-effective first step in being able to personalize prevention or treatment. Cumulative estrogen exposure can increase the risk
