Roman Rittweger knowledge managment

the vision is fascinating - but the question remains, what do you do with all the information from the genetic search machine. To interpret the facts and to seperate the wheat from the chaff you need an expert or an expert system.
Whoever manages that could overtake Google and Microsoft!

Wolfgang Grulke RE: knowledge managment

I think in this scenario that service would be provided by Apollo Genetics - their global team of scientists and researchers would by then have created the WebMD of 'Genetic Diagnostics'!

Wolfgang Grulke Mapping the individual - cheaply

Wonderful article in the Guardian today has this numerate view of how things have chaged:
COST AND TIME NEEDED TO MAP DNA
2003: $ 437 million and 13 years
2007: $ 10 million and 4 years
2008: $ 100 thousand and 4 weeks
2012: $ 100 and 2 days (estimate)

Doug Vining Put your genes in the DNA bank

It's quite remarkable how some of our scenarios from years ago seem to be reflected in everyday life today.

How weird is it that this MindBullet we published in 2006 had a dateline of 2011?

Wolfgang Grulke Put your genes in the DNA bank

Another MindBullet suggested a scenario where HSBC and Deloitte got together to start a DNA bank - I guess they missed that opportunity.

Anton Musgrave Memory sticks have just become the future

An incredible new invention in DNA sequencing will create the kind of step change impact we so often talk about and in the process will re-write the rules that governed that space previously. The potential impact in every sphere of diagnostics and healthcare is profound.

Wolfgang Grulke New findings will shape biotech for years to come

The results of the five-year Encode project (Encyclopedia of DNA Elements) were published yesterday across 30 papers in the journals Nature, Science, Genome Biology and Genome Research. The researchers have mapped 4m switches in what was once thought to be junk DNA. This will spur major new developments, products and new VC companies.

Anton Musgrave Printing drugs...a frightening prospect!

Imagine the ability to print your prescription medicines at home...great idea and increasingly possible. However, imagine the challenge facing anti-drug agencies face when we will similarly be able to print narcotics! every new innovation has a dark side...we often refer to this as 'creative destruction' but in this case it seems we ought to coin a new phrase of 'destructive creation'.
