Significance of FFPE Tissue Samples in Preventive Genomics and Precision Medicine

Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues can play a transformative role in preventive genomics and precision medicine. Analysis of DNA and RNA are central to our understanding of disease and disease risk. With FFPE tissues, these biomolecules (and other essential characteristics) are available for scientists to study. The longevity of FFPE tissue samples and their long history…
