Abstract

Next generation sequencing raises new questions within the context of an existing and still evolving regulatory landscape for device manufacturers and clinical laboratories. FDA cleared the first NGS sequencing platform in November 2013, but it is unclear what lies ahead for this technology. NGS will require new types of training and expertise to interpret the vast quantities of genetic data so as to provide meaningful clinical information to physicians and patients. This paper will describe the current regulatory landscape for NGS technologies, identify the regulatory challenges they present, and consider whether new regulatory paradigms are needed to accommodate NGS technologies and services.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 32. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 12 October 2014.
All research outputs
#452,226
of 12,550,366 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics
#25
of 738 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#9,563
of 212,554 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics
#4
of 16 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,550,366 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 96th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 738 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.1. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 96% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 212,554 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 95% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 16 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 75% of its contemporaries.
