Genomics


Genome sequencing can help us better understand, diagnose and treat disease. For example, healthcare providers are increasingly using genome sequencing to diagnose rare genetic diseases, such as elevated risk for breast cancer or pulmonary arterial hypertension, which are estimated to affect roughly 8% of the population. At Google Health, we’re applying our technology and expertise to the field of …

Tons of technologies are emerging in all kinds of different fields. To keep up without getting overwhelmed is a challenge. Every new step is labeled as “the next big thing”. Can’t blame anyone there tho. When we are trying to move ahead so aggressively in all the so-called efficient ways possible. When we don’t even …

Once the three-billion-letter-long human genome was sequenced, we rushed into a new “omics” era of biological research. Scientists are now racing to sequence the genomes (all the genes) or proteomes (all the proteins) of various organisms – and in the process are compiling massive amounts of data. For instance, a scientist can use “omics” tools …
