You can think of the DNA sequence of each cell as being like the text of an instruction manual, and epigenetics as being like the formatting.
Some parts of the manual are bolded, highlighted, or underlined, telling the cell to emphasize those sections, while others are struck out, telling the cell to ignore those genes at this time.
The cells of most organs in the body are continuously replaced by new ones, and the old cells release their nucleosomes into the bloodstream as they die. Our patented Nucleosomics™ technology isolates circulating nucleosomes from the blood for quantiﬁcation and analysis.
The Nu.Q® family of tests (short for nucleosome quantiﬁcation) will oﬀer a convenient and cost effective new approach to the detection and diagnosis of diverse diseases from a simple blood test.
