Thunderclap: Lend Us Your Social Media Voice

We are excited to announce that we have now launched our Thunderclap. We would love for you to lend us your social media voice to help spread the word about the importance of data sharing in genetics and the work of the DNAdigest charity. Joining up takes just seconds and could have a massive impact. By joining you allow a one-off message to be automatically shared to any of the social media accounts which you have chosen to link. By signing up to our Thunderclap campaign you can help to strengthen the DNA Digest voice and make sure as many people as possible are aware of the importance of data sharing in genetics and of the challenges and solutions that surround this topic. We greatly appreciate your support!

GCOF: The Laboratory and Development of Technology

This weeks poster from the Genetics Clinic of the Future is on the theme of the laboratory and the development of technology. As with the previous posters, which you can take a look at here and here, this graphic is part of the output from the interdisciplinary workshop run by UMC Utrecht and The Responsible Innovation Collective. The workshop focused on exploring the changing face of genetic clinics with the introduction of Next Generation DNA Sequencing (NGS). Take a look at the poster to gain an insight into the effects of NGS in the laboratory. With the advancing of gene technologies genetics in the laboratory is set to change. It is not just outside the laboratory but on an immediate level that NGS will have an impact. Xavier Estivill, from the Centre for Genomic Revelation and Dexeus Woman’s Health, lead the presentation on this part of the workshop.
