    This seems to be a new initiative:

    More here: https://www.omf.ngo/science-wednesday/

    The first one was 29 Oct: https://www.omf.ngo/2017/10/29/introducing-omfsciencewednesday/

    And the next, 1 Nov: https://www.omf.ngo/2017/11/01/personalized-medicine/

    I found both of them via the https://www.omf.ngo/science-wednesday/ page without having to go to Facebook.

    Good to see something coming out about the science every week but of course we're all impatient for something substantive to come out in terms of findings...

    That doesn't surprise me. I think the processes are set up for certain types of samples. I seem to remember reading the gene expression work needed very fresh samples.

    I'm also concerned about the whole freezing process given the latest Newton paper which shows frozen and fresh samples separately and they seem to form different clusters.

    I hope for all our sakes that cheap blood testing is achievable. I'm sure they're working hard on it.
