‘Not all genes are created equal’
Genetic testing kit to be used in Uttar Pradesh, Punjab article Genetic Testing Kit to be Used in Uttar Pradhan Mantri Jan Sangh in Punjab, India, as part of ‘Not All Genes are Created Equal’ campaign.
The kit will allow for identification of genetic markers and help identify individuals who are genetically predisposed to certain diseases, including those related to cancer.
It will be used to identify individuals with rare disease variants that are often present in populations of the same region or country.
“DNA testing can help to identify diseases, especially cancer, and prevent genetic diseases, particularly those linked to cancer,” Dr. Rakesh Kumar, CEO of the Center for Biotechnology and Innovation, said.
The test will be the first in the world to be specifically targeted to people with rare diseases.
The testing will be available in Uttar Panchayat and the local district administration will have to enrol the families in the testing.
In Uttar Pradesh and Punjab, the government has initiated a pilot project to test the kit and provide a pilot-scale test to the affected areas.
On a mobile phone, people can receive an SMS message informing them about the kit.
The test will take a minimum of 15 minutes.
When the test is completed, the results are uploaded to the National DNA Database, the National Centre for DNA Technology, and the Ministry of Health.
Dr. Kumar said that genetic testing is an important tool to combat genetic diseases and that it is also a way to prevent and diagnose diseases that can be prevented.
While the tests will be able to identify rare diseases, the testing kit will be useful in identifying those with rare variants in the region.
A person’s genetic marker is based on the presence of two or more genetic markers.
For example, an individual has a BRCA1 or BRCa2 gene mutation.
This genetic marker can be found on a person’s X-chromosome.
An individual can be tested for an inherited disease if one of their genetic markers is positive, and can also be diagnosed if one is negative.
According to Dr. Kumar, the kits will also help in identifying individuals who have genetic variants in their families and to identify those who have been genetically preduced.
According to a recent study by researchers at Harvard University, the genetic testing of one person will help in finding out if that person has the gene variant that causes the disease, and also to identify who has the disease variant.
The study was published in the journal Nature Genetics.
