Kucherlapati added that such tests form the foundation of personalized medicine approaches that HPCGG is seeking to advance -- the ability to select the best treatment for the individual patient based on his or her genetic profile.
In addition to supporting HPCGG research, the new Affymetrix technology will further strengthen the HPCGG core facilities supporting the broader research community with genomic and other high throughput services.
From world-class research, to access to a major physician network serving over 2 million patients, HPCGG has the resources needed to start translating genomic results into better health care.
Upon completion of the study, both HPCGG
and Metabolon expect to report results from the collaboration in a peer-reviewed publication.
