Genomics

 

 

What is Genomics?

The field of Genomics encompasses the systematic study of the entire DNA sequence of an organism’s genome. The term includes analysis of the full complement of coding and non-coding RNA in a given biological system, otherwise known as Transcriptomics.

The Impact of Genomics

1. Accelerates

the identification of novel drug targets.

2. Facilitates

the identification of drug-risk profiles in early preclinical development.

3. Enhances

the stratification of patients enrolled in late-stage drug development.

4. Stimulates

the development of novel multivariate signature assays.

5. Supports

the identification of quantitative traits.

What We Offer?
