2/8 What tests should the bride and groom undergo before marriage to ensure a family life free of "surprises" and stress? Few people realize that infectious diseases can be contracted from their life partner. To prevent this, future spouses must undergo a medical examination. Image
3/8 By law, individuals entering into marriage must undergo medical examinations for mental health, drug addiction, sexually transmitted diseases, tuberculosis, and HIV/AIDS. Image

1/ Ever wondered how the 4th industrial revolution (#AI, robotics, and big data) is reshaping healthcare? 🏥 🚀
Let's dive into some fascinating facts and insights I found in the #book "Deep Medicine" by @EricTopol
2/ 💻👨‍⚕️ Electronic Medical Records (EMR) are mostly designed for billing, not for physicians' ease of use, contributing to doctor burnout 😩
How can we leverage #AI to improve the EMR and serve both purposes effectively? #HealthIT
3/⏱️ Did you know? If physicians make a #diagnosis within 5 minutes, they have a 95% chance of getting it right (System 1 thinking). This rate can drop to 25% afterward!
How can we harness #AI to assist in faster, more accurate diagnosis?

This #WomensHistoryMonth, let's celebrate the remarkable contributions of #WomenInScience! 👩‍🔬

Help us recognize their achievements by joining our #NameAFemaleScientist campaign.

👉 Follow us @GeneticSystems as we'll be featuring one #femalescientist each week in March.
#NameAFemaleScientist — Meet #MarthaChase with her groundbreaking work on DNA that challenged the prevailing theory at the time that proteins were genetic material.

Her work laid the foundation for further research into the role of DNA in inheritance and genetic disorders.
#NameAFemaleScientist — Did you know that the key to understanding the link between diet and heart disease was unlocked by a pioneering African-American biochemist named Marie Maynard Daly? Image

Is the field of Metabolic Psychiatry new and emerging? Actually no. There has been a long history of metabolism being known to play a role in mental illness. #metabolicpsychiatry #mentalillness (1/12)
@ChrisPalmerMD provides an excellent outline of what we knew and when in this talk on the @Metabolic_Mind YouTube Channel (2/12)
@ChrisPalmerMD @Metabolic_Mind Sir Henry Modsley said in 1879 that diabetes is a disease that runs in families with insanity. #metabolism #metabolicpsychiatry (3/12)

The sequencing of #genomes has been a major milestone in #biology. We have precise maps of the #genome of animals and we think that we know all the major players. Especially the conserved ones which are so important that most animals have them. But is it really like that? 3/22

Are you interested in learning about #bioinformatics and working with #genomic data? Here's a detailed #learning path to get you started:
To build a strong foundation in biology, you'll need to learn about:
The #structure and #function of #cells, including the various #organelles and their roles in the cell. This will help you understand how cells work and how they carry out essential functions such as #metabolism and #energy production.

A new milestone 🎉: my 3⃣0⃣th publication!

Published @amjtransplant, entitled:
"An interleukin 6-based genetic risk score strengthened with interleukin 10 polymorphisms associated with long-term #kidney allograft outcomes."

Time for a #tweetorial 🧵👇 Image
1.) Of all #kidney transplants, half are still lost in the first decade after #transplantation.

Using #genetics 🧬, we probed if interleukin 6 (IL-6) could be a target in kidney #transplantation to improve graft survival & if a genetic risk score could improve prognostication.
2.) Together with @marigaya, @VojtechPetr and colleagues from the @GTCumcg & @researchumcg, we studied the impact of IL6, IL6R, IL10, IL10RA & IL10RB 🧬variants on late graft loss by analyzing both recipient and donor DNA of >1,200 #kidney transplant‐pairs.

Creating awareness for the public on the key factors which influence the lung development till adulthood and sharing the ways to keep the lungs healthy is important.

Because we all have only one set of lungs. (1/n)

This is a new term introduced recently which highlights the 'complex and dynamic' interactions between #Genetics and #Environment over #time which plays the crucial role in the development of #COPD (2/n)
When i was a resident, I was taught that #Cigarettesmoking contributes to ~90% of COPD burden in the world.

But now the data suggets that more than half of COPD burden, worldwide is due to causes other than tobacco. Why? What has changed? (3/n)

$NTLA and $REGN report initial data from ph1 study of #ATTR for NTLA-2001. All patients across the two doses showed 92-94% TTR reduction at day 28.
#crispr #genomics #genetherapy #biology #biotech
At both dose levels, $NTLA-2001 was generally well tolerated. 2 patients reported transient infusion reactions, which was the only observed treatment-related adverse event.
$NTLA-2001 is an in-vivo administered #genetherapy.
It is one of the first few in-vivo #GeneTherapy being tested. Congrats to the $NTLA and $REGN teams.

Two’s Two’s Two’s - Excited to share our study finding evidence of 2 major subtypes of obesity. Hope these can eventually help support more accurate understanding, diagnosis & treatment of #obesity and #diabetes.
Two patterns of Twin discordance – All started with data-driven finding of 2 major patterns of MZ twin discordance using a dimensional reduction approach. Thank you @TwinsUKres for pioneering cohort and generosity of your staff, funders and participants!…
The discordance patterns suggest two forms of human phenotypic plasticity. Type-A = adipose only | Type B = adipose, lean mass, and #insulin co-discordance. Interestingly, Type B shows far more #epigenetics differences suggesting developmental programming.

What do you think is the biggest disconnect between the clinic and research when it comes to hEDS?
Here are my thoughts:
- many things are “known EDS things” that EDS providers see. But this data often isn’t published or easily accessible by researchers so there is no follow up on why and how those things happen
- genetics often stops with clinical geneticists and doesn’t reach a lab that can follow up with biology

- a lack of continuity of care so patients see multiple specialists that don’t always know the whole picture outside of their speciality, which is then missing from research

A team of marine biologists led by Scripps Oceanography's Amro Hamdoun (@Hamdounlab) has created lines of sea urchins — the marine equivalent of lab rats — that can be used as genetic models using the gene editing technology known as #CRISPR.

Described in a new paper out today in @Dev_journal, the genetic makeup of the #SeaUrchins is fully mapped and can be edited to study human disease genes.

What are hundreds of skeletons doing at the bottom of a lake in an icy Himalayan wasteland? When the snow melts, it pulls back a frozen curtain, exposing 600-800 skeletons, some 1,200 years old! What spooky secrets does Roopkund Lake in Uttarakhand hold? 1/5 #Archaeology Image
At an elevation of 5,029 m, Roopkund Lake is very remote. One theory is that these are the remains of a King, his family and attendants, who died here while on a pilgrimage 1,000 years ago. Other theories include fallen soldiers during war and victims of an epidemic. 2/5 Image
The mystery deepened recently, when studies revealed some astonishing results. The deceased were from diverse ethnic groups. More incredible, they belonged to different time periods! This means they did not all die from a single catastrophic event. 3/5 Image
