Pictures of DNA sequences of patients with autism
Research organization Autism Speaks and New York advertising agency BBDO NY, are trying to make a digital library database of 10,000 DNA samples of autistic patients. This could be accessed at any time from Google Cloud by doctors around the world. Two thousand DNA samples have already been crystallized and taken a picture of for the project. Some DNA genome sequences will be turned into music for another experience.
“MSSNG has the potential to change the future for millions of people with autism,” said Liz Feld, president of Autism Speaks, said in a press release, “and this event is designed to heighten its awareness.” A definite 10,000 samples will be sequenced for the MSSNG project. Chief science officer of Autism speaks wants to progress further with this too, “We aren’t stopping at 10,000. MSSNG has been built to manage hundreds of thousands of genomes, and expect it to become the home for the entire field’s sequencing data.”
