Posted by Neoteryx on Jan 10, 2019 1:29:00 AM

Genomic DNA (gDNA) is found in the chromosomes and has a higher molecular weight and is longer as compared to plasmid DNA. This is what scientists need and collect when doing genome sequencing.

One purpose of genome sequencing is to help scientists understand how the genome works, and how genes work together to enable growth, development, and maintenance of the entire human body or any other organism. In order for a scientist to be able to study how the genome works, a process by the name genomic DNA extraction has to take place. There are several ways to extract the genomic DNA and from different sources including blood, hair, urine, etc.

An Integrated Care Pathway (ICP) is an incorporative summary of expected care for a given span of time that is applied to a patient or a group of patients with a particular set of disease symptoms or a condition in order to have a progressive clinical experience and have positive results. Associated procedures may include clinical and non-clinical care service. This practice is a great step in providing patients with a smarter healthcare.
