  1. ncbi request reprint The fallacy of racial pharmacogenomics
    S D J Pena
    Departamento de Bioquimica e Imunologia, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, MG, Brasil
    Braz J Med Biol Res 44:268-75. 2011
    ..The conclusion is that "next-generation" genomic sequencing is advancing at a tremendous rate and that true personalized pharmacogenomics, based on individual genotyping, should soon become a clinical reality...
  2. ncbi request reprint DNA tests probe the genomic ancestry of Brazilians
    S D J Pena
    Gene, Núcleo de Genética Médica, Belo Horizonte, MG, Brasil
    Braz J Med Biol Res 42:870-6. 2009
    ..In Brazil, one cannot predict the color of persons from their genomic ancestry nor the opposite. Brazilians should be assessed on a personal basis, as 190 million human beings, and not as members of color groups...
  3. ncbi request reprint Isolation and characterization of HC1: a novel human DNA repair gene
    D O Lopes
    Departamento de Bioquimica e Imunologia, Instituto de Ciencias Biologicas, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil
    Genet Mol Res 8:247-60. 2009
    ..These data indicate a new human repair gene, which we named HC1; it is involved in the recognition of two kinds of DNA lesions and it contributes to the 5' DNA incision step in NER...

    Genet Mol Res 9:1525-34. 2010

    R R Gomes
    Departamento de Bioquimica e Imunologia, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil
