NGS Informatics: Choosing the Superior Software Tool
July 30, 2018 -- As Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) continues to grow, scientists face many challenges in terms of their data analysis and storage solutions. Our members at The Science Advisory Board have disclosed it is difficult to determine the significance of results as well as store the mass amounts of data. There are many solutions but most lack desired features, creating uncertainty amongst researchers over the best option.  Discuss
Oncologists Embrace the Liquid Biopsy for Precision Cancer Treatment
July 27, 2018 -- Here at The Science Advisory Board we aim to keep ahead of the curve with the latest breakthroughs in the life sciences field. An exciting advancement to follow in this space is precision medicine. The NIH defines precision medicine as “an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person." Within the last week, the liquid biopsy has made headlines as a diagnostic test for patients with cancer.  Discuss
Tech Overview - Flash Chromatography
July 26, 2018 -- Today’s focus will be on flash chromatography, a special type of column chromatography. Flash chromatography is a preparative liquid chromatography method that can quickly and easily separate organic compounds. This technique offers fast results because pressurized gas pushes the solvent through the column of the stationary phase, rather than rely on slower, gravity-based chromatography.  Discuss
CRISPR - A New Era in Genome Editing
July 25, 2018 -- A major buzzword in the science world recently has been CRISPR: short for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats. This is a simple, yet powerful genome-editing technique that has recently taken the scientific community by storm. When coupled with the Cas9 protein, the technology allows for specific changes (addition, modification, and deletions) to be made to the DNA of humans, animals, and plants, thereby offering a tremendous potential in a wide array of applications from agriculture biotechnology to therapeutics.  Discuss
Competition within Single-Cell Analysis Technology
July 24, 2018 -- The excitement surrounding the ability to measure genomic, epigenomic, transcriptomic, and metabolic status in individual cells is reflected in the high level of activity we’ve seen this past year. We at The Science Advisory Board are excited to share with our members some of the highlights we’ve observed within single-cell analysis this past year.  Discuss
Tech Overview - GC/MS
July 22, 2018 -- Today’s piece will discuss gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS). GC/MS is a technique used to identify components of complex mixtures and determine the molecular weights of the compounds.  Discuss
