Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory geneticist Gholson Lyon, recently pointed out in an article about Apple’s DNA-related ambitions that we don’t yet have a “killer app to interact with [our DNA] quickly and easily. Continue reading… “Are API’s for the human genome coming soon?”
Genomics pioneer Craig Venter
In 2000, researchers finished the first draft of the human genome. Although the decreasing cost of the technology has far outpaced Moore’s Law since then, we have yet to fully leverage all that new information, to make it really useful.
The need for personalized therapies abound.
It is the dawn of a new age of personalized medicine. The interpretation of the human genome will transform medicine. We are moving into the data-driven medicine of tomorrow. Soon, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and most importantly, prevention will be tailored to individuals’ genetic and phenotypic information.
