Toward creating future medicine based on genome information


By the biotechnological innovation, it is now possible to examine the entire genomes of individuals. Because our genomes determine personal variations in susceptibility to diseases and drug sensitivities, we need to develop the technology of the genome information analysis, which leads to the realization of personalized and preventive medicine in near future. We thus develop information technologies to predict personal “characteristics,” such as disease susceptibilities, by examining one’s genome sequences.
