  • RNA sequencing improves diagnostic rate for rare disease patients

    Although genetic sequencing has aided the diagnosis of many genetic diseases, only about one third of children with unknown or rare genetic diseases end up with a diagnosis after exome sequencing. To help these patients, Stanley Nelson, professor of human genetics at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, wanted to explore the genome more effectively. In a recent publication in GIM, Dr. Nelson and team show RNA sequencing helped to solve an additional 15% of cases that genome sequencing alone couldn't. On this month's podcast, Dr. Nelson and host Cynthia Graber discuss how transcriptome sequencing may be able to shorten the diagnostic odyssey for some rare disease patients and whether insurance companies should pay for the testing.

    La semaine dernière, le prix “Nobel” d’économie a été décerné à Esther Duflo. Ce qui l’intéresse ce sont les programmes de lutte contre la pauvreté, dont l’éducation fait partie. Et de fait, elle utilise une méthode scientifique dite de l’expérimentation aléatoire pour répondre à des questions comme: Comment améliorer l’instruction des enfants à moindre coût ? Alors justement comment aborder l’éducation d’un point de vue scientifique, c’est ce que nous allons voir ce soir grâce à Eléa, qui a invité 2 : experts Pleen de la chaîne Edukey, assistant de recherche en sciences de l’éducation, et Charlotte de la chaîne Les Langues de Cha’, doctorante dans le même domaine, qui vont nous expliquer un peu en quoi consistent les sciences de l'éducation. Vous êtes dans Podcast Science émission 388, nous sommes le mercredi 23 octobre de l’an 2019, bienvenue!
