ng a prognosis and care pathway to be charted. "Since collectively, rare diseases are not rare, exome sequencing will soon move to the front end of the diagnostic process."

The applications of massively parallel sequencing (MPS) technology to fetal cell-free DNA have brought new insight into noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT). Dr. Wei Wang, Director of BGI Health, one of BGI's affiliates, introduced their progress of clinical practice using NIPT. Wang's team recruited 11,105 Chinese volunteers for their NIPT test, and the results show that NIPT test is of high sensitivity and specificity in detecting fetal T21, T18 and T13. "NIPT has a huge prtentiality to be integrated into prenatal screening-diagnosis workflow." said Wang.

From the Laboratory to the Farmland: Agricultural Genomics

The discovery of DNA has an important effect on agriculture because it has allowed breeders to facilitate the breeding of economic crops and animals that have a better resistance to against harsh environment and diseases. Major efforts are underway worldwide to help extricate vulnerable dryland communities out of poverty and hunger, particularly those in the under-developed countries and regions.

Wheat is a globally important crop due to its enhanced adaptability to a wide range of climates and improved grain quality for the production of baker's flour. In the conference, Dr. Michael Bevan from John Innes Centre, U.K., described their progress in sequencing and understanding the fascinating and complex genome of bread wheat, and in assessing how the genome has been shaped by polyploidization. The extremely large size and polyploid complexity of the wheat genome has to date been a substantial barrier for researchers to gain insight into its biology and evolution.

From scientists to the public: Consumer Genomics

Consumer genomics is certainly a hot topic, but what does it mean for the end users - you and me? Genetic testing
