Scientists have developed a molecular “clock” that could reshape how pediatricians measure and monitor childhood growth and potentially allow for an earlier diagnosis of life-altering development disorders. The research, published this week in PNAS, describes how the addition of chemical tags to DNA over time can potentially be used to screen for developmental differences and health problems in children.
The CMMT is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and core facilities, including the BioAnalyzer Core Facility, DNA Sequencing Facility, Science Stores, Mouse Animal Production Facility (MAPS) and Transgenic Facility.
These facilities and services are utilized by researchers at CMMT, the Research Institute, as well as researchers in the wider research community.
CMMT’s unique combination of facilities, resources and staff create a supportive and collaborative research environment that is key to the success of our research programs.
