Consumer Genomics

Consumer genomics is a rapidly advancing industry with the ability to gather large databases of genetic information of individual data. This information will allow people the ability to adapt their lifestyle and potentially modify disease trajectories in the future. Discover the latest research on consumer genomics here.

Cell Migration

Cell migration is involved in a variety of physiological and pathological processes such as embryonic development, cancer metastasis, blood vessel formation and remoulding, tissue regeneration, immune surveillance and inflammation. Here is the latest research.

Down Syndrome

Down syndrome is a chromosome disorder associated either with an extra chromosome 21 or an effective trisomy for chromosome 21. Clinical manifestations include hypotonia, short stature, brachycephaly, upslanting palpebral fissures, epicanthus, Brushfield spots on the iris, protruding tongue, small ears, short, broad hands, fifth finger clinodactyly, Simian crease, and moderate to severe intellectual disability. Discover the latest research on Down syndrome here.

Chromosomal Abnormalities

Chromosome abnormalities can be classified as either structural or numerical. Numerical abnormalities include duplications or deletion of a pair of chromosomes, such as Down Syndrome. Structural abnormalities include missing, extra or switched parts of a chromosome. Discover the latest research on chromosomal abnormalities here.

Personality Disorders

Personality disorders are a class of mental disorders characterized by enduring maladaptive patterns of behavior, cognition, and inner experience, exhibited across many contexts and deviating from those accepted by the individual's culture. Discover the latest research on personality disorders here.

Skin Cutaneous Melanoma

Cutaneous melanoma is a cancer of the pigment-producing cells known as melanocytes. While it has a 98 percent five-year survival rate when caught early, thousands of deaths are attributed to this cancer each year. Here is the latest research.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, arise due to chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. Here is the latest research.
