CURRENT AFFAIRS QUIZ - 2019
This university has developed a new computer program named Flye to develop precision medicine.
A)
University of Sydney
B)
Monash University
C)
Australian National University
D)
University of Adelaide

Correct Answer : Option (C) - Australian National University

Note : Flye' a new computer program developed by Australian National University (ANU) can help develop precision medicine. It will be helpful to find out a person's genetic makeup. The research is published in Nature Biotechnology. Flye is a step-by-step procedure for computers to assemble genomes. It will enable the process to be much faster and accurate than the current best practice methods. With the use of long DNA sequences, Flye will improve the reliability of genome assemblies and lead to a range of biomedical applications. A long DNA sequence ranges between 5,000 and 20,000 DNA letters, whereas short sequences are typically 200 letters.
