The program will aim to develop and evaluate next-generation genomics and informatics tools to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. It will leverage available tools and recent research in genomic technologies, computation, and data science, as well as large genomic datasets, DNA from hundreds of thousands of participants collected and stored in biobanks, and electronic health records.
“SolveBio helps patients by making it possible to run diagnostic applications. Genetic diagnosis involves taking a person’s DNA and comparing it to the world’s information on the relationship between DNA and health,” said Kaganovich. “We provide that reference data in a simple, easy-to-use set of APIs. It’s ‘clinical-grade’ in that it is accurate, secure, up-to-date, and versioned (you know exactly what version of a dataset you are using).”
