Could you really find the one through DNA Matching?

This week: Comment in "The Express"

Can you really find the one through DNA matching?

The One left fans on the edge of their seats as they watched relationships break down before their eyes.

The MatchDNA app destroyed happy couples as it made them question whether they were really destined to be with each other.

Rebecca had stolen her friend Ben's (Amir El-Masry) data to see if there was any correlation between DNA and experiencing a true spark with someone.

However, the app proved to have negative impacts on people's lives as they started to put science before their own hearts.

New Coronavirus Strain: Will Vaccines Still Work On Variant Found In The U.K.?

Read about with Francois Paillier our founder comment on:

DNA expert François Paillier from DNA mapping company CircaGene told me. “The mRNA vaccines are only ‘recipes’ given to the human body to help it produce the appropriate immune response,” said. Modifying these vaccines, he added, is like editing the text of the recipe.  

François Paillier from CircaGene, who added: “As each country starts to roll out their vaccination program, we must do our bit to reduce the virus population, replication and potential mutations. Our vaccinations will build immunity, but we need to avoid crowds and follow national guidelines on wearing a mask, washing hands and social distancing.”

Lung Cancer Awareness Month with CircaGene

November is the month where we raise awareness to one of the leading causes of cancerous deaths worldwide, Lung cancer. According to Cancer Research Uk, it is the third most common type of cancer within the UK region. 

How does it happen you may ask? Well, when abnormalities happen within cells, it causes them to divide at a frantic rate which then forms a tumour in the lung. This can reduce someone's ability to breathe.

There are factors that can accumulate the risk of developing lung cancer such as being exposed to specific chemicals and smoking. Although non-smokers are also at risk of developing the cancerous disease through pollution, passive smoking, genetic disposition and more. Symptoms of lung cancer such as: 

  • Breathlessness
  • Coughing up blood
  • Drastic weight loss
  • Unexplainable headaches
  • Recurrence of chest infections (bronchitis or pneumonia)

These are some symptoms that can be an indicator of lung cancer symptoms.

At CircaGene we aim to raise awareness so that people experiencing these symptoms seek the necessary help needed. It may not be anything fatal however it’s always safe to check. If it turns out to be lung cancer, the earlier you check the more likely you can control your condition and not let it control you. Ensuring you receive the best treatment needed to alleviate the cancerous disease.

The Founder's Series -

Francois Paillier as guest 

Episode Description

Francois discusses his journey from joining the first startup in France to provide DNA sequencing service and how this ignited his passion for human health. It was after 8 years that he decided to pursue a career in In Vitro Diagnostics. After 9 years he decided to move to London and pursue a new challenge with a very innovative company that wanted to design a DNA sequencing machine. 2 years later, he quit his position after helping figure out the technical details and created CircaGene - a genetic testing company who also focuses on encryption to keep the user's data safe. Listen to Francois's journey and why he founded CircaGene.
