How to hire a genomics expert
In biology, the study of the genes, their variation and how they are passed from one generation to the next is called genetics. Genes are made of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and, in each organism, the complete DNA set is called a genome.
Our DNA gives the blueprint for the behavior of our cells and ultimately our body. Genetics and genomics are directly related to how the human body and other organisms function.
The study of the genome, including its structure, characteristics, evolution and mapping is known as genomics. While genetics focuses on each single gene and how it functions, genomics deals with all genes and how they interact with each other.
Each cell of each living organism carries genetic information in the form of chromosomes. Humans have a total of 23 chromosome pairs, which contain about 20.000 different genes.
In 2003, the Genome project was completed with success, resulting in a representative sample of the genome for all human beings. This project was aimed at shedding light into the genetic basis for disease and health.
What do genetic consultants do?
The domain of genetics experts include how genes mutate, how they are inherited and how they get activated or suppressed, including their importance in health and disease. These experts focus on the genes on the collective, individual and molecular level.
Genetics can sometimes be described in terms of specialized areas, such as:
- Human genetics - Genetic variations and mutations are directly related to disease and aging in humans and other species.
- Environmental genetics – Studies species adaptation and the interaction between genes and environmental conditions.
- Epigenetics – The study of how genes are activated or suppressed by external factors in the environment and the consequences of these changes to the body.
- Genomics – Focuses on the genome, the interactions between different genes and between genes and the environment.
- Medical genetics – clinical geneticists or medical geneticists are physicians specialized in the diagnosis, clinical treatment and counselling of patients who have genetic diseases
Today, most medical scientists agree that the majority of diseases affecting human beings has some genetic basis. Genetic participation in complex diseases such as cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular has been the focus of many genetic studies in the last decade.
Why hire a genetics expert?
Most genetics experts conduct scientific research related to the expression of genes in laboratory settings. They usually collaborate with other health professionals, such as physicians, veterinarians, molecular biologists and molecular engineers.
They can take part in the development of diagnostic and screening tests for biomedical sciences and in the development of tailored drugs according to an individual’s genetic characteristics (pharmacogenomics). Genetic engineering is another interesting field within genetics, as well as biotechnology for improving medicinal plants.
Another angle of genetics is the evolution of human beings through the study of the DNA in the human species. In law and forensics, genetics can also play an important role in the identification of victims and criminals.
A genetics consultant is typically very experienced in developing and implementing research methodology, as well as interpreting genetic results through mathematical methods and statistic’s software. A consultant in clinical genetics is a medical professional who can help with diagnosing and managing genetic disorders. Genetic cousellors are healthcare professionals who provide families and individuals with the information they need to make choices about genetic disorders and conditions.
Technical, academic and scientific writing are common activities for genomics scientists and genetics experts in general.
How much do a genetics consultant charge?
A freelance geneticist charges a minimum of 40 USD per hour for consultancy. When hiring e genomics consultant or an expert in the field, there is the possibility of agreeing on a fixed price per project, which might be beneficial for you and for the freelancer.
How to write an effective job to hire a genomics expert?
Through our platform, finding a genomics expert requires minimal time and effort. Once you know exactly what you want from the freelancer, all you need to do is provide the information listed below:
- Project description or scope of work
- Duration of the project
- By when you need to hire
