I've had 24 hours to think about @TheACMG's decision NOT to support #genetic counselors bill HR3235, The Access to Genetic Counseling Act. @TheACMG does not support genetic counselors right to order genetic testing. 1/5
@TheACMG I am a certified genetic counselor with >25 years experience in the field. I've been the senior author on 4 published papers re: 'errors in genetic testing', including errors due to the wrong test being ordered. 2/5 #gcchat
@TheACMG Errors documented have resulted in #patients having prophylactic surgeries they did not need, being diagnosed w late-stage cancers, and huge waste of #healthcare dollars. All of this because a #genetics professional was not involved in the ordering process. 3/5

O Departamento de Justiça dos EUA descobriu um dos maiores esquemas de fraude na área de saúde da história, com desfalque estimado de US$ 2,1 bilhões no sistema público de seguros. Mas as implicações vão além do prejuízo do governo. Segue o fio.
#HealthTech #dataprivacy #genetic
1) Segundo a investigação do Dep. de Justiça (DOJ), o esquema foi montado por laboratórios, que pagavam propinas a médicos e empresas de telemarketing, para realização de testes genéticos desnecessários faturados pelo Medicare (seguro público para pessoas de mais 65 anos ou mais)
2) As empresas de telemarketing monitoravam beneficiários do Medicare e telefonavam oferecendo testes genéticos com a promessa de estimar risco de câncer e determinar a eficácia de medicamentos. Alguns foram até abordados pessoalmente em feiras de saúde e instituições religiosas.

#MECFS citizen science: What are the answers to these 6 important questions on Myalgic Encephalomyelitis???

The insightful questions below come from this nice @diagnostic_mdpi review

1. Is there a genetic susceptibility which leaves some individuals vulnerable to #MECFS after exposure to a virus, bacteria or toxic chemical?

1/ Excited to share work led by @varshney_arushi genetics.org/content/211/2/… @GeneticsGSA, we compared gene regulatory annotations defined using diverse #epigenomic data across 4 cell types to measure cell specificities and #genetics of #geneRegulation
2/ We observed that stretch and super #enhancers are more cell type-specific whereas HOT regions and broad domains comprise more ubiquitous promoter states
3/ #eQTL in stretch enhancers have significantly smaller effect sizes compared to those in HOT regions. This suggests regulatory buffering where the expression of cell-identity genes is more tightly controlled

Dr M #Karunanidhi was a scientists’ scientist. Among his numerous contributions to Tamil Nadu's development are outstanding universities like Anna University as well as the State Biotechnology Council and gender-sensitive institutions like the Women’s Biotechnology Park.
#Karunanidhi was also keen to see Tamil Nadu progress from food security to nutrition security. Long before India's #foodsecurity Act was introduced, he launched in the 1990s a ‘#Hunger -free area programme’ in order to fulfil the dream of Mahakavi Subramania Bharathiyar.
The former Chief Minister also married #science with Tamil #literature. At the World Tamil conference in 2010, Dr #Karunanidhi announced the setting up of genetic heritage gardens based on Sangam literature in five zones representing kurinji, mullai, neithal, palai and marutham.
