Orlando recently shared why talking to your loved ones about family health history benefits your future
The future of discovery in the world of research goes beyond the walls of core teams. Collaboration across institutions, countries, and around the world will answer the biggest questions in years to come.
Submission deadline extended to January 5, 2022
Host gene expression-based tests are a promising strategy to discriminate bacterial and viral etiologies, but their potential clinical utility has not yet been evaluated.
Over the last decade, genetic testing has evolved from examining a few well-defined variants in one or a few genes to the capability to examine much of the human genome using next generation sequencing (NGS).
