Title How AI and ingenious apps are changing the face of medical research Degree of recognition National Media name/outlet NSW Government Media type Web Country/Territory Australia Date 29/09/19 Description For just a small sample of your saliva and around $100, there are services that will analyse your DNA at more than 700,000 genetic markers. In six to eight weeks, you can find out if you’re 23% Polynesian or 6% Viking, among many other unique characteristics.
It’s reasonable to think that if our genes can tell us where we’ve come from, they can also tell us where we’re headed, especially with regards to our health.
“There’s a sense in which people think precision medicine is all about the gene,” says Professor Enrico Coiera, Director of the Centre for Health Informatics at the Australian Institute of Health Innovation at Macquarie University.
