Whole-Genome Scans Not Quite Ready for Widespread Use: Study

By Amy Norton HealthDay Reporter Latest Prevention & Wellness News TUESDAY, March 11, 2014 (HealthDay News) — Commercially available tests can analyze your genetic profile and try to predict your risk of a host of diseases. But a new study suggests they aren’t ready for prime time. The technology, known as whole-genome sequencing, allows scientists to “map” the information encoded in most of the billions of building blocks that make up a person’s DNA.

Nanotechnology for Cleaning Blood

Category: Science & Technology Posted: May 11, 2012 09:40AM Author: Guest_Jim_* Whoever first had the idea for the lithography system used to produce modern integrated circuits, probably did not think their invention would be used to clean a person’s blood. As reported by the American Institute of Physics, researchers at MIT and the National University of Singapore have created a device that cleans infections from the blood. The key was using margination, a natural phenomenon that separates parts of the blood
