Genetics in the News
This article's main topic is how genomic sequencing can help reduce the number of breast cancer cases seen. 86 gene variants were studied and arranged to see what sequences had a high risk of developing breast cancer. Although it is not cost effective to have your genes sequenced at birth, it is becoming more cost effective. If one knows at an early age they are at high risk for breast cancer, they will be able to take precautions to help prevent them from developing breast cancer.
