IBM 5 in 5: Medical labs “on a chip” will serve as health detectives for tracing disease at the nanoscale
By Gustavo Stolovitzky, Program Director of Translational Systems Biology and Nanobiotechnology at IBM Research
I’ve been working on cancer genomics for over a decade and a half, during which I’ve seen incredible progress, mostly coming from advances in genomics technology. In the beginning, my work was mostly focused on crunching massive sets of genomics data coming from technologies, new at the time, like gene expression arrays and, later, RNA sequencing. About 10 years ago, I recognized that the incredible expertise and resources in micro and nano technology we have at IBM could be used to advance DNA sequencing.
