Selling the Code

The Code, Part 3: It’s now easier than ever to peer into your own genetic code. But are all of the new companies out there offering you information about yourself that you can believe?

Fixing the Code

The Code, Part 2: Does the ability to more easily change the blueprint of life mean we’re on the path to repairing the broken bits in our genetic inheritance? Or have we tried this before and failed? 

Finding The Code

The Code, Part 1: The race to sequence the human genome was also billed as a race to end disease. So what happened?

Drowning in TCGA Data: How to Keep Your Head Above Water

To fully benefit from the vast quantities of data from TCGA, tools for easy data visualisation and analysis must be developed for use of the non-computational scientist. Our panel of experts discuss TCGA data and the tools needed to make sense of it.

Weekend Reads, week 15

Some are exciting (Bill Gates on gene editing and George Church on how to live forever), some are informative (lab mice might be too clean, questioning drug pricing and freeing health data). You can read one, or you can read all five. That’s up to you!
