#6 Jackson Laboratories for Genomic Medicine Opening
The Grand Opening of Jackson Laboratory in Farmington, CT was this past Wednesday, October 8th. In this episode I discuss the presentations and the facility itself from the conference (check out upcoming conferences). The hot areas in genomic medicines mentioned at the symposium are explored such as prenatal and newborn genome sequences as well as ultra-rare genetic diseases. A quick news story on further findings of the breast cancer associated gene, BRCA2 is shared in honor of October being national breast cancer awareness month.
