Visit We’re at a pivotal moment in the history of medicine. “There really is no aspect that won’t be touched by DNA sequencing.” – Dr. Jonathan Rothberg, Ion Torrent by Life Technologies Today when we look at diagnosing disease it’s still very much trial and error. But whether it be identifying unknowing bacterias and bugs, whether it be choosing the right medicine at the right dose for an individual patient, or whether it be really characterizing the cancer before we give it a treatment. We see a vision where we’ll do the DNA sequencing and for the patient this will really dramatically change the treatment outcomes for them. For the Beery twins this is already reality. Throughout their lives, the twins were plagued with neurological problems. Their condition remained a mystery. “It was frightening, it was disheartening. It was something that no parent wants to go through or certainly expects to go through.” — Retta Beery Diagnosed with Dystonia in 2002, their DNA was sequenced in 2010, revealing new genetic data. “What sequencing brought into our family’s lives, it’s truly changed our lives. Finding the exact genetic mutation responsible for Noah and Alexis’s neurologic disorder and that’s given us information to add additional therapy to what they’re already taking.” — Retta Beery “You know when I run it’s just, the feeling of just being alive” — Alexis Beery “The test here was amazing, the attention is really good, there were like 300
