Analyzing the Whole Genome with Bina Technologies
I attended the Personalized Medicine World Conference 2013 this week where I met with Mark Sutherland, SVP of business development at Bina Technologies. Bina has built an analysis solution that helps make sense of the raw data from whole genome sequencing (WGS). Researchers have long awaited the day when WGS is fast and affordable. Now it’s looking like that day is near, as many expect the price to soon fall to $1,000 per genome. But as Bina CEO Narges Bani Asadi explained in a recent Venture Beat post, the full benefits of raw genomic data can only be realized with further analysis, the logistics of which are complex. In this video Sutherland talks about where Bina’s technology comes into play during the process.
