We’re currently able to scan the entire human genome in a single day, and the application of genetic sequencing has the potential to improve diagnosis, prognosis and treatment. Ahead lies the opportunity to easily discover rare hematological diseases that might previously have gone unnoticed or would have been hard to diagnose. We look closer at genetic sequencing and discuss its applications.
Host for the podcast is the Swedish hematologist Mats Merup. Special guest in this episode is Professor Janna Saarela. Jaana is the director of the Norwegian Centre for molecular medicine, and a researcher working to improve our understanding of the disease pathogenesis and mechanisms of human immune disorder.
