There are a variety of disorders of the pancreas including acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis, hereditary pancreatitis, and pancreatic cancer. Signs and symptoms of pancreatitis may vary, depending on the disease. Hereditary pancreatic diseases are inflamatory diseases of pancreas, most often…
Validation of a Semiconductor Next-Generation Sequencing Assay for the Clinical Genetic Screening of CFTR
Genetic testing for cystic fibrosis and CFTR-related disorders mostly relies on laborious molecular tools that use Sanger sequencing to scan for mutations in the CFTR gene. We have explored a more efficient genetic screening strategy based on next-generation sequencing of the CFTR gene.
