Customizing The Exome

Webinar

The introduction of exome analysis provides the opportunity to improve more findings compared to traditional genetic testing approaches and fixed panel-based genomic analyses. Large studies of many families using trio exomes and a genotype first approach have been incredibly powerful tools for gene discovery and identification of pathogenic variants in rare Mendelian disorders. Proband only exomes, however, require different methods of variant filtering which typically involve prioritisation of genes and/or variants based on phenotype.

Using Supercomputers to Predict Dispersal of Chemicals and Pollutants
Article

Motivated by a deadly chemical attack in Syria, researchers at the University of Texas at San Antonio are pursuing research that may help save lives during an airborne chemical attack. The team used the Stampede2 supercomputer and innovative computer simulation models to replicate the dispersion of the chemical gas released in the Syrian event, which may help improve evacuation speed during future attacks.
