Prevention of Hospital Acquired Infection During COVID-19: a New Discovery Available

Early detection and prevention of hospital-acquired infections through passive monitoring devices help in the reduction of cases. COVID-19 is another threat to patients and health care workers in hospitals. Due to the inflation of COVID-19 cases, people avoid entering hospitals, specifically the emergency rooms, where many cases come in each day.
Moreover, the public is aware of the associated risks when exposed to infected people with COVID-19. A recent study developed a new tool to detect hospital-acquired infections with an association of five pathogens.

Vaping Doesn’t Differ From Smoking

Vaping Doesn’t Differ From Smoking: It Can Cause the Same Chemical Changes to Our Genome

Smoking can harm your heart, lungs, and most of your organs. People who usually want to live a healthier lifestyle decide to kick smoking out of their habits and become less dependent on it. However, people who smoke when they want to quit smoking are usually tempted to turn to vaping devices.
As part of their transition from cigarette smoking to none at all, smokers consider that using vaping devices or e-cigarettes can help them adjust eventually. Although it is less harmful than smoking nicotine, vaping, according to scientists, is still unsafe says Industry leaders.
Vaping Causes …

Genomics Education Week for Healthcare Provider

The future of medicine changes because of discoveries such as genomics. Genomics plays a significant role in patient care and wellness. However, most healthcare providers are not aware and well equipped with knowledge on genomics. Raising awareness on genomics and the resources available will be covered in this event. Moreover, a social media campaign will be conducted during the educational week that primarily focuses on imparting genomic education. The activities included are webinars, social media such as Twitter and other platforms, panel discussion, and question and answer sessions.
The event details are as follows:

Genomics Branch: Computational and Statistical

The genomic and genetic analysis takes place through an intensive approach application which is the main focal point of the Computational and Statistical Genomics Branch.
Overview
The investigators of this branch are experts in genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics. These fields include mathematics, epidemiology, statistics, computer science, and molecular genetics for identifying disease susceptibility.
Moreover, experts’ objective is to expand knowledge on the complexity of diseases and advance new statistical approaches to evaluate and analyze the spectrum of genetic data. Computational biologists …

Machine Training in Genomics Workshop

The workshop on genomics covers machine introduction, tools, clinical application, and ethics. It will be a virtual workshop and to be facilitated by a genomic data science working group. The main objective of this workshop is to elaborate discussion on challenges and opportunities about machine learning strategy to genomic medicine. And also to determine topics in genomics from machine learning and its unique role in research.
Furthermore, this area of genomics and machine learning is considered to be fundamental in research. The workshop is a two-day workshop that will include comprehensive discussions from machine learning, …

Genomics Branch: Cancer Genetics and Comparative

Identifying and discovering genes that influence cancer progression and susceptibility is the objective of this branch.
Overview
The research study deals with cell mutations that have resulted in cancer exposure and progression of different aggressive cancers such as endometrial cancer, prostate, lung, bladder, gastric and neck cancers.
Inherited genetic mutation can result in the production of tumors that are acquired over time. Genomic alterations cause tumor growth and metastases in some cases. The investigation includes methodologies to expose genomic mutation that causes tumor formation and production.

Social and Behavioral Science Research

Enhancing optimal approaches to incorporate genomic discoveries into clinical practice is the main objective of a social and behavioral research study.
 Overview
The research study involves a group of health conditions, from major health problems to unique genetic disorders that affect most families. In addition, the study includes the exploration of genomics and behavioral and social sciences as well as training future scientists and medical experts in this field.
Factors of genomic discovery
The scope of the study includes various groups of conditions and identifies how factors of genomics divide with …

A Study on COVIDCode

The human body uses specific genetic instructions to develop and grow. Alterations in genes are a probable cause of many medical diseases and a possible cause why other people are more susceptible to get sick than others. COVID-19 is a life-threatening health problem, and scientists believe that genetics may identify the severity of the illness in certain people.
Moreover, the study’s goal is to explore the contributions of genes to the seriousness of COVID-19. Through …
