A special thanks to Dr. Neil Lamb at the Hudson Alpha Institute for Biotechnology. A major mission of Hudson Alpha is to educate the public and promote genomics literacy. I talked to many scientists about Genotyping but Dr. Lamb’s ability to break down the complexity of the human genome is what finally brought it home for me. Hudson Alpha provides many opportunities for Genomics Education and

Genotyping and Sequencing are very different:

A special thanks to the Lab Manager Amanda Douglas for being a complete science rock star and a great person to work with I spoke with about a dozen LabCorp Employees who are under Amanda and every one said she was an absolute joy to work for. I know my experience working with her great and I hope her boss reads this blurb I wrote down here in the video description and gives her a high five and a big fat bonus or something equally as awesome.

23andMe provide Genotyping testing using an Illumina HumanOmniExpress-24 format chip. Here’s a bit about the chip. Heads up, it’s incredible technology. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVG04dAAyvY

Ambiance and musicy things by: Gordon McGladdery did the outro music the video.
The thought is it my efforts making videos will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for my kids college education. Until then if you appreciate what you’ve learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please SHARE THE VIDEO!
