Technology and Approach

GenoMed’s primary scientific initiative consists of its SNPnet©. The SNPnet©™ is the set of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) GenoMed uses to locate disease genes. We use a fishing metaphor since finding disease genes is like fishing for a handful of letters in an ocean of three billion letters. Our SNPnet© is currently made up of over 80,000 SNPs and covers the entire human genome. Once the disease genes are identified, disease-associated SNPs will be placed onto a single DNA chip, the HealthChip®, for clinical diagnostic testing.
