UW-Madison researchers are using long-read technologies to address new questions in biology.
Building trust with communities underrepresented in health research
The All of Us Research Program – UW is successfully engaging diverse participants, ensuring equity in precision medicine
Faculty Highlight: Valentina Lo Sardo – Trajectory and genetic risk factor research
A leading researcher in genetic risk factors with a focus in cardiovascular disease, Dr. Lo Sardo shares some of her trajectory and research.
Genome-wide CRISPR screening hits its stride on campus
As genome-wide CRISPR screening is now widely accessible to researchers on Campus, three UW-Madison experts share their experiences with CRISPR screens, how it revolutionized scientific discovery, and what researchers who are considering incorporating the technology should know.
Leading-edge consent process will benefit UW genomics researchers and patients
UW Carbone Cancer Center is piloting a new front-door patient consent process that will make genomic and clinical data more readily available to UW researchers for broad translational advances.
Genomics and its Diversity Problem
Genomics suffers from a lack of diversity not only in its workforce but also in its data. The woeful underrepresentation of minority genomes and data in genomic research programs robs these groups of the promise of genome-enabled health care decisions.
