(San Diego EDC, July 29, 2015) – There are 3.2 billion base pairs in your genome. Although all of this information is contained within a single cell, decoding it – and thus understanding many diseases and pathologies – is a challenge.
San Diego-based Cypher Genomics, winner of the MetroConnect Prize, may be changing that.
“We’re working to translate your genome into actionable information to impact human health,” said Adam Simpson, COO of Cypher Genomics at the MetroConnect launch on July 1.
Cypher is working to solve a large problem facing the genomics industry – genome interpretation. As one of the 15 winners of theMetroConnect Prize, Cypher will be taking its genome decoding technology to the rest of the globe.
