  • CSIRO launches serverless 'search engine for the genome' on Alibaba Cloud

    ​Trials of CRISPR/Cas9 are getting underway around the world. Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats/CRISPR associated protein 9, to give it its full name, holds huge promise for tackling cancer, hereditary blindness, AIDS, cystic fibrosis, Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy, hepatitis B, Huntington’s disease and even high cholesterol.

  • Big data to advance cancer genomics

    Big data is poised to drive advances in the highly promising area of cancer genomics as researchers use information from increasingly disparate sources to identify the genetic and external factors that trigger this group of potentially deadly diseases.

  • Feature: Next next generation sequencing

    It took nearly two decades to go from the release of the first semi-automated genome sequencer in the mid-1980s to the launch of Roche's flagship 454 FLX next generation sequencer in 2005. The 454 is now one of three major players in the next gen market whose impact on the world of genomics cannot be underestimated. Just five years later we are poised to embrace the next generation of sequencing technology.

  • 'IT genome' an effort to map tech 'DNA'

    IT discovery vendor BDNA on Wednesday unveiled Technopedia, what it calls the world's first "IT Genome," a regularly updated encyclopedia of information on every type of enterprise software and hardware platform.
