Due to the development of CRISPR and TALEN technologies, the field of genome editing is evolving rapidly. This post highlights the natural evolution of these technologies leading to outsourcing gene editing to skilled service providers.
Single nucleotide polymorphism can alter liver enzyme interactions with drugs. PBMC samples provide genetic information predicting drug interaction outcome. Blood sampling is easy and a relatively painless means of obtaining myriads of information about one’s physiology. In the serum component of blood we have numerous tests for antibodies, other proteins, and metabolites that can tell tales about several internal organs. Then there is the peripheral blood mononuclear cell or PBMC component which can be used to unravel other mysteries.
