Environmental toxin biomarkers

What impact do environmental contaminants have on human health? Until recently, it was difficult to adequately address this complex question. From animal models and cell and tissue culture studies, it has been clear for quite some time that contaminants ranging from heavy metals to organic chemicals like BPA, PCBs and dioxins can be extremely detrimental… Read article →

Targeted DNA sequencing: why you might miss some mutations

One of our favorite things here at QIAGEN is the concept of targeted DNA sequencing. If you haven’t heard about it yet, it’s an approach that involves enriching specific regions of a gene prior to NGS. More scientists have been adopting this strategy recently because it has three key advantages over whole-genome sequencing. Namely, targeted… Read article →
