Personalized/precision medicine: the ability to prescribe medication based on the unique genetic makeup of patients. This concept has been a goal of many medical practitioners, and with the advances in Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS), personalized medicine is expected to soon transition from concept to practice.

Scientific communities around the world continue to make new discoveries between the human genome and genetic disorders. As a result, scientists have generated far more data now than ever before, potentially providing researchers more evidence to connecting the relationship between genetics and diseases.

By harnessing genetic sequencing data from RNA-seq, an NGS method that examines most…

As many of us can assume, the availability of movies is endless to the point that a person could watch a new movie every waking hour. However, we often end up finding ourselves searching through the movie selection that our streaming services have available (Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, etc.), hoping to find the right movie to fit our interests, if not just to fit our mood. Unlike physically browsing through Blockbuster in the past, streaming services attempt to lessen the time we browse through their selection by providing us movie recommendations immediately after logging into the service. And to…
