To design globally agreed upon standards, built and deploy genome mapping software from scratch, throughout the globe, will take five to ten years and require billions of dollars. In contrast, most all entities worldwide have access to mapping software. Reusing this existing location data infrastructure will enable global federated genomic data to travel between entities and across borders far more quickly than if the research community attempts to build federated genomics software from scratch. Infrastructure reuse, just like data reuse, makes tremendous financial sense.
Currently, often genomic data is expatriated from the countries and communities providing the DNA samples. One mechanism for helping ensure value gets returned to the communities providing the data is for genomic data access to be revocable. Using DNA Compass technology, entities will have their own genomics infrastructure for publishing genome map layers and revoking access to the data if needed. This capability allows genomic data to evolve from written consent to dynamic consent, likely enabling far greater access to genomic data at scale.
DNA Compass.. Fast, Simple, Affordable
To accelerate discovery, we need technology that cultivates trust and is easily accessible. That means being:
