31 August, 2017 – Alexei Fedorov, Ph. D., is not a newcomer to the field of genetics. With over 35 years of experience, he has designed, guided, and completed numerous scientific research studies, including 18 different bioinformatic projects, and scholarly papers he’s written have been cited and referred to hundreds of times. It has been his unfailing commitment and lifelong goal to advancing the human genome that led to his work with The Cellular Research Institute, specifically CRI Genetics.
In a recent interview, Fedorov, Ph.D., discussed his work with CRI Genetics and the importance of cultivating and understanding the human genome in the 21st Century: “Not long ago, genetic testing was something many people believed was a thing of the future, something reserved for special circumstances or people with money. Luckily, for us today, this is no longer true. Genetic testing is not a trend, but a viable area of study that can provide us, and our families, with important information that will help the progress of human life. Who wouldn’t want to be part of that?”
Perhaps what makes Fedorov’s work with CRI Genetics (www.crigenetics.com) particularly note-worthy lies in the analysis of data. Using a combination of Genetics and Anthropology, Fedorov established a new system that compares a person’s DNA to 642,824 genetic markers backed by scientific research to provide the most relevant tracing of ancestry.
When asked about what this specific type of analysis means for the average person, Fedorov stated: “By comparing a DNA sample to only 642,824 genetic markers, we are able to provide the most statistically likely estimation of a person’s ancestry without skewing results.”
Fedorov continues to honor his goal of advancing the human genome into new frontiers by furthering his research and sharing his knowledge of genetics with others. “Genetics can open many doors for us as a species – it can help us understand our ancestry, but also live healthier and happier lives because we have the ability to know what medical predispositions lie in our genes and can choose to be proactive. Gone are the days where people waited in the doctor’s office to get answers.”
