Post Comment

Overview

Together, IBM and Coriell Life Sciences have teamed up to create a near real-time tool for physicians based on genome sequencing. Using complex genome data, physicians can extract meaningful information about a specific patient to create better, more personalized treatment plans.

so what we do is take advantage of a really unique time

in health healthcare and life sciences with the
0:12
Advent love now cheap genome sequencing

and the advances in technology we can now sequence in individual

I'm for less than the cost of an MRI so we take this very complex three billion

point some information in the human genome
0:25
and we extract from that meaning and interpret that into something that's as

simple as

you might consider an alternate treatment for this drug for this

individual because their body won't actually process it very well

so it's a real time application that physicians use through a web browser an

you know an android-based tablet a smartphone and this is a really powerful

new capability as a physician advisor decision support tool
