The branch of molecular biology known as genomics is, at its core, the study of life. DNA contains all the information necessary to build a living organism, including the human body. The organization and proliferation of genetic data over the last two decades hasn’t just changed the scope of healthcare, it’s altered our understanding of the nature of life itself.
Within the fascinating field of genomics, which recent developments hold the most potential for disruption? Here are three exciting innovations going on right now.
Researchers have been studying the science behind drug addiction for the better part of a century. At any given moment, tens of thousands of scientific researchers are working on ways to prevent, stem, and even “cure” the problem of substance abuse. These professionals look at every avenue, from mental health to the elemental structure of medications, to better our understanding of how drug addiction works. Here are three promising developments in the science of substance abuse.
Drugs of abuse testing is, in some ways, an imperfect science. With new innovations developing within the industry almost annually, best-practices for drug testing have become muddled, varying sharply from lab to lab.
One of the most common effects of an inefficient drug testing process, lengthy incubation times can have a significant negative impact on results, reliability, and ROI.
