Infographic on NGS clinical research milestones


DNA mutations have been implicated in several diseases, particularly cancer, and NGS presents an ideal technology to efficiently profile the multitude of mutations in a high-throughput manner. In 2001 the first draft of human genome was published. Since then many major milestones have been achieved. Do you know when PIK3CA mutations were identified in colon cancer? When was Olaparib approved for ovarian cancer treatment? The infographic traces the major clinical research milestones achieved starting from 2001 to today. Find out about the history of NGS clinical research milestones today.
