Q&A with Latin American personalized genetics company: Genomit SA (Zoigen)

Saliva is one of the most accessible of our body's bio-fluids making saliva sample collection easy and non-invasive.  Saliva also harbours a wide spectrum of genetic data that can be used for genetic research and clinical diagnostic applications. It might surprise you to know that much confusion surrounds the source of genomic DNA in saliva. It certainly came as a surprise to me when I met with a number of customers on a recent trip across the continent.
