GENOME LINK API is a developer-friendly tool designed to help you integrate user's DNA information into your app effortlessly -- without advanced requirements like genomics expertise and how to securely handle raw DNA data.
The current price tag on sequencing the whole human genome is $1000 -- down from $3B in 2000. And it's projected to drop to just $100 in a few years. It'll be easier than ever to take a peek into your own genes. Genetic information will be more accessible than ever , but what can we do with this new wealth of insight? How can personalized services based on our genetic information help improve our health, lifestyle, and learning experience?
Genomics and intepreting genome data used to be stuff of scientists. But with the rapid rise of sequencing technology and APIs like GENOME LINK API, the opportunity to contribute to this exciting field has become wide open for developers. Our previous in-person hackathons in Tokyo and San Francisco have been a huge success. We created this online hackathon to invite the worldwide community of developers to take part in thinking up and building the next killer genomics app!
- Create apps that provide actionable insights based on users' genome data.
- Build tools to help users understand their DNA better.
