AWS is proud to announce that it supports the White House Precision Medicine Initiative with big data analytics. The goal: to bring the fruits of med research into practical use by giving healthcare researchers free high-value data sets.
Precision Medicine is a new field that includes a person’s genome, lifestyle, and environment for diagnosis and treatment.
Programs now in the works include the National Cancer Institute Molecular Analysis for Therapy Choice (NCI-MATCH). This aims to help patients get the right treatment by using next-generation sequencing (NGS) to screen mutations in tumor samples. More than 3,000 samples are now being screened across the USA.
Meanwhile, Syapse has created software that matches patient data with genome and molecular data to come up with insights for proper treatment. More about Syapse and their efforts can be found in this video.
