Webinar on Diagnosis of Rare Diseases using NGS Based Multi-gene Testing- Case studies 18 Apr

A disease is considered to be ‘rare’ when it affects one in about 2000 individuals in the population. This, individually are although rare, collectively, the incidence could be very high causing a significant socio-economic burden. Arriving at a confirmatory diagnosis is a major challenge in these inherited disorders, which can significantly impact treatment and disease … Continue reading “Webinar on Diagnosis of Rare Diseases using NGS Based Multi-gene Testing- Case studies 18 Apr”

Ultra-sensitive variant calling and transcript quantification using Unique Molecular Identifiers

Background Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies have remarkably revolutionized the medical and genomics research. The incremental cost reductions and size of the throughput at molecular resolution helped penetration and acceptance of the NGS methodologies into worldwide labs and clinics. The third generation wave of NGS technologies are knocking the doors to provide impetus to the … Continue reading “Ultra-sensitive variant calling and transcript quantification using Unique Molecular Identifiers”

Decoding Breast Cancer using Strand NGS DNA Variant analysis

One of the most dreaded diseases mankind has faced in recent times is cancer. Because of high morbidity and mortality rates that cancer brings it is a fearsome disease. When we hear about cancer no one believes that it can happen to them or to anyone else close. But the reality is far from this. … Continue reading “Decoding Breast Cancer using Strand NGS DNA Variant analysis”

The tyranny of large numbers: mutations in breast cancer

What’s in a number? Small numbers are roguish capsules of triple meaning. The number 7 is the date you were married; it’s the exact number of teaspoons of sugar in a halwa recipe your mom sent you; it’s the age of your eldest son on his next birthday. As we get older, we become acquainted … Continue reading “The tyranny of large numbers: mutations in breast cancer”

Accuracy puts the there in speed: DNA-Seq stuff!

In certain circles, asking why speed is good is tantamount to heresy. I once submitted a paper with the phrase “computational performance is not an explicit goal of this work” in the abstract. It was rejected; in his explanatory note, the reviewer had said that my approach was “unlikely to yield great speedups,” and that … Continue reading “Accuracy puts the there in speed: DNA-Seq stuff!”

Seeing is Believing – Genome Browser and Elastic Genome Browser in Strand NGS

The unending desire and quest to unravel and see what lies beneath the deepest layers have always pushed humans to improve upon anything and everything that they touch. This curiosity in a way has led to never thought before technological advances.  One of the most important discoveries of all the times has been the discovery … Continue reading “Seeing is Believing – Genome Browser and Elastic Genome Browser in Strand NGS”
