||... cover article in the December 2019 issue of Nature magazine 1 . The paper is now a strong reference base and discussion point for scientists working globally on genomics. The increased diversity captured in MedGenome's genetic datasets will drive discovery of new gene-disease associations, drug targets, and novel therapies. The investment in MedGenome will seek to capitalise on the favourable dynamics in both the domestic and international markets for genetic ...
||Why Does the Pharma Industry Need Cloud Technology?
||... of researchers’ time and about $3 billion in funding to parse the entire human genome using anonymous donor DNA. Pharmaceutical companies and gene therapy research groups have benefited tremendously from the availability of public genetic datasets born from these efforts, which double in size roughly every 18 months. Without cloud computing, however, vast portions of this data would remain inaccessible to researchers. Obtaining results from public genetic datasets means researchers ...
||Attacks on genetic privacy via uploads to genealogical databases
||Direct-to-consumer (DTC) genetics services are increasingly popular for genetic genealogy, with tens of millions of customers as of 2019. Several DTC genealogy services allow users to upload their own genetic datasets in order to search for genetic relatives. A user and a target person in the database are identified as genetic relatives if the user's uploaded genome shares one or more sufficiently long segments in common with that ...
||A bgen file format reader. Bgen is a file format for storing large genetic datasets . It supports both unphased genotypes and phased haplotype data with variable ploidy and number of alleles. It was designed to provides a compact data representation without sacrificing variant access performance. This python package is a wrapper around the bgen library , a low-memory footprint reader that efficiently reads bgen files. It fully supports the bgen ...
