Genomics is the key to address many of the healthcare challenges present today. The cost of executing genetic testing has increased drastically as advances in sequencing technology have made individual genome sequencing economically feasible.
The advent of latest techniques has reduced cancer detection time through DNA liquid biopsy test, which are noninvasive screening options. Revolutionary gene editing techniques such as CRISPR-Cas9 may soon offer innovative ways to modify genes to treat rare genetic diseases and create better food supply in agriculture. Using in-memory computing technology, researchers are able to analyze and use the genomic data in several innovative ways, leading to extraordinary changes in the way healthcare is delivered today.
The new frontiers opened by healthcare technology innovations are leading to unprecedented opportunities for better healthcare. Leveraging large amounts of data collected through pharmacogenomics, direct-to-consumer genomics and wearable devices, new players are building technology for medical people to gain deeper insights into bringing innovation in healthcare delivery. To close the gap between translational research and clinical diagnosis and treatment, the healthcare and research community is working toward the integration of genomic data into clinical workflows
Companies are also leveraging big data analytics, AI and deep learning to provide a more applicable knowledge of the human genome. Subsequently adopting cloud-based software for faster and better analysis of genomic information such as the GATK software, which is now available as a software-as-a-service.
To help CTOs, CIOs, and CEOs find the right genomics solution provider, a distinguished selection panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts, and the Pharma Tech Outlook’s editorial board has selected a list of Genomics Solution Providers that exhibit innovative technologies combined with cloud strategies. We have considered the vendor’s ability in building solutions and services that can effectively yet economically account for a productive genomics solution, keeping in mind the factor of time-focused delivery.
