Protecting People Genomics > Table of Pharmacogenomic Biomarkers in Drug Labeling Pharmacogenomics can play an important role in identifying responders and non-responders to medications, avoiding adverse events, and optimizing drug dose. Drug labeling may contain information on genomic biomarkers and can describe: Drug exposure and clinical response variabilityRisk for adverse eventsGenotype-specific dosingMechanisms of drug actionPolymorphic drug target and disposition genes The table below lists FDA-approved drugs with pharmacogenomic information in their labeling. Epigenetics Epigenetics PBS air date: July 24, 2007 CHEERFUL NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON: Did you ever notice that if you get to know two identical twins, they might look alike, but they're always subtly different? CANTANKEROUS NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON: Yep, whatever. CHEERFUL NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON: As they get older, those differences can get more pronounced.

Education Feature Genome exhibition travels to The Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose, California Following a four-month engagement at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center in San Diego, the high-impact interactive exhibition, Genome: Unlocking Life's Code, is making its second stop in California. The exhibition will open at The Tech Museum of Innovation, in San Jose, on Jan. 22, 2015, where the public will be able to visit it through April 27, 2015.

Resources, Animations, Interviews, + Tools We are enhancing our most popular resources by building collections around them. First up: Polymerase Chain Reaction! The DNA Learning Center has been developing multimedia animation programs since 1990. These popular programs feature some of the most common molecular processes such as PCR, sequencing, and DNA restriction. View online or download for play from your computer.

The Ductile Helix: "Jumping Genes" May Influence Brain Activity Mobile DNA molecules that jump from one location in the genome to another may contribute to neurological diseases and could have subtle influences on normal brain function and behavior, according to a study published October 30 in Nature. (Scientific American is part of Nature Publishing Group.) Retrotransposons are mobile genetic elements that use a copy-and-paste mechanism to insert extra copies of themselves throughout the genome. First discovered in plants about 60 years ago, they are now known to make up more than 40 percent of the entire human genome and may play an important role in genome evolution (pdf). Researchers from the Roslin Institute in Edinburgh, Scotland, have now comprehensively mapped retrotransposon insertion sites in the genomes of normal human brain cells for the first time. Their analyses identified more than 7,700 insertion sites for L1, the best-characterized retrotransposon family that was already known to be active in brain cells.

Genetically Modified Foods Can you think of some possible risks of growing plants that contain genes from other organisms? Let's examine our earlier examples: the beetle-resistant tomato, the vaccination banana, and the saltwater rice plant. We've already covered the potential advantages of these plants, but what are the concerns? Bandolier - Evidence based thinking about health care Apologies for being quiet this past few months. New material will begin being posted on the website. What has been holding things back has been a very considerable dynamic in figuring out how clinical trials in chronic pain should be interpreted.

Allergy and Infectious Diseases The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) conducts and supports basic and applied research to better understand, treat, and ultimately prevent infectious, immunologic, and allergic diseases. For more than 60 years, NIAID research has led to new therapies, vaccines, diagnostic tests, and other technologies that have improved the health of millions of people in the United States and around the world. NIAID is one of the 27 Institutes and Centers of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Social Media Push to Get Experimental Drugs on the Rise <br/><a href=" more news videos</a> | <a href=" from the US</a> Copy For a growing number of gravely ill patients running out of options, social media has become their last bastion of hope. And they're sharing their private struggles to motivate public action.

The Illustrated Guide to Epigenetics Illustrations by Joe Kloc This month marks the ten-year anniversary of the sequencing of the human genome, that noble achievement underpinning the less noble sales of 23andMe's direct-to-consumer genetic tests. To commemorate the scientific occasion, we've created an illustrated introduction to one subfield of genetics likely to produce even more dubious novelty science projects someday: epigenetics. What is epigenetics?

Samples of Formatted References for Authors of Journal Articles The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) offers guidance to authors in its publication Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals (ICMJE Recommendations), which was formerly the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts. The recommended style for references is based on the National Information Standards Organization NISO Z39.29-2005 (R2010) Bibliographic References as adapted by the National Library of Medicine for its databases. Details, including fuller citations and explanations, are in Citing Medicine. (Note Appendix F which covers how citations in MEDLINE/PubMed differ from the advice in Citing Medicine.) For datasets (Item 43 below) and software on the Internet (Item 44 below), simplified formats are also shown. Reference Types
