  • Powerful Genome Barcoding System Reveals Large-Scale Variation in Human DNA

    Cost effective and rapid complete genome analysis maybe just around the corner ...

    Genetic abnormalities are most often discussed in terms of differences so minuscule they are actually called "snips" -- changes in a single unit along the 3 billion that make up the entire string of human DNA.

    "There's a whole world beyond SNPs -- single nucleotide polymorphisms -- and we've stepped into that world," says Brian Teague, a doctoral student in genetics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. "There are much bigger changes in there."
