Quotes

"It is expected that BREVAGenplus will deliver improved outcomes over our first generation test and will, very importantly, be applicable for each of the major ethnic groups in the United States. Not only will this make physicians more likely to use and recommend the test, but it will also greatly simplify the sales and marketing efforts required to support the enhanced product."
...Health Analytics Center at Columbia's Institute for Data Sciences and Engineering, as well as a member of its Foundations of Data Science Center. "With this comprehensive catalog of mutations present in the Ashkenazi Jewish population, we will be able to more effectively map disease genes onto the genome and thus gain a better understanding of common disorders. We see this study serving as a vehicle for personalized medicine and a model for researchers working with other populations."
The TAGC database is already proving useful for clinical genomics, identifying specific new mutations for carrier screening. Lencz explains: "TAGC advances the goal of bringing personal genomics to the clinic, as it tells the physician whether a mutation in a patient's genome is shared by healthy individuals, and can alleviate concerns that it is causing disease. Without our work, a patient's genome sequence is much harder to interpret, and more prone to create false alarms. We have eliminated two thirds of these false alarms."
"The availability of genome sequence also means that biologists can ask much more open-ended questions than twenty years ago using molecular biology. At that time we could study the influence of small groups of genes on a biological process, but now we can ask questions about the entire genome. We are beginning to understand how it is that the whole of a living system is so much more than the sum of its individual component genes."
