Precision Medicine is a new medical concept and medical model based on personalized medicine, with the rapid advancement of gene sequencing technology and the cross-application of bioinformatics and big data science.
Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) costs are greatly reduced, coupled with big data analysis, to promote the feasibility of precision medicine, precision medicine began to promote in 2015, and huge business opportunities are gradually taking shape. In recent years, the world has built a human biological database and the National Institutes of Health human biological database to spare no effort, coupled with the input of various genetic testing companies and research institutions, precision medical development has taken shape.
How to integrate cross-unit data databases will determine the development of precision medicine. A fully sequenced human genome contains 100GB to 1,000GB of data, which is very difficult to interpret. It requires a specialized database for comparative analysis of data information. Big data analysis must use industrial computers. Meaningful disease treatment can also produce extremely high value.
Many foreign companies have established their own large-scale database and developed related software for rapid data analysis to explain the results of genetic testing. In addition, the mainland China Huada Gene has a super computing power of 157 trillion operations per second, and the data storage capacity is as high as 12.6PB. The strength cannot be underestimated.
Since the fields and system architectures of various genetic testing companies and public database units are different, in order to expand the accuracy and service scope of big data analysis, the integration and data exchange of data databases will become a challenge. Genetic testing companies or pharmaceutical companies rely on complementary mergers or alliances to meet the needs of integration. For the analysis and identification, verification and application of biomarkers for large sample populations and specific disease types, to accurately find the cause of the disease and the target of treatment, and accurately classify the different states and processes of a disease, and finally achieve The purpose of individualized and precise treatment of diseases and specific patients is to improve the effectiveness of disease diagnosis and treatment.
