Researchers from Emory University Undertake A New Genetic Mapping

Researchers from Atlanta have announced that in a new project they've begun to draw out a new kind of genetic data that may help explain why some people// are susceptible or resistant to certain diseases.

It has been reported that the synopsis of the project that is being undertaken by the researchers of the Emory University was released yesterday, the 10th August, and it is to be published in the scientific journal, Genome Research. Lisa Brooks the director of the Institute's genetic variation program, of the National Human Genome Research Institute, a federal agency, said, “The topic is quite exciting" and the Emory researchers are breaking new ground.”

The research scientists are of the opinion that in around 10 years, doctors would be able to examine the DNA of newborn babies, and compare it to a reference code of human DNA so as to anticipate an infant's vulnerability to any disease. They explained that they hope that such information could help doctors in knowing as to which medicines would work most efficiently on any particular illness that could develop in a person.

Scott Devine, an Emory assistant professor of biochemistry and the co-author the paper said, “We're entering an exciting new era of predictive health,” he also added that the work by Emory should also contribute towards that. It was reported that in the year 2000 scientists had announced to finish considerably mapping the genetic blueprint for all human cells. The scientific community had heralded that breakthrough as ushering in a new era of medicine, which would, and to a certain extent has now, led to the findings of newer methods for treating and testing of the diseases.

In 2003, scientists had published the completed human genome sequence based on the DNA obtained from about a half-dozen people. It was reported that the mapping had showed that the human genome is made from billions of chemical building blocks that appear in pairs. They explain
