An overview of the Empowered Genome Community, an initiative to help people who have had their whole genomes sequenced, through efforts such as the Personal Genome Project (PGP) and Understand Your Genome program (UYG), make their genomes more scientifically useful, by exploring and sharing them with each other and with researchers, through a secure online genome interpretation application, Ingenuity Variant Analysis.

Learn more, including how to join the community yourself, at http://ow.ly/pZCXB.

The slides here also walk through preliminary findings from an openly crowd-refinable proof-of-principle analysis of myopia (nearsightedness) in 111 people's whole genomes.

Anyone can dig into the myopia analysis, and help refine it with an eye to jointly publishing robust findings, at http://variants.ingenuity.com/community-myopia.

  • One adult genome says much about ancestry, and a bit about drug response, but otherwise little about health. As such, getting your genome today is like tuning into a station from aliens…then realizing it’s mostly spam ads. Need to filter. Challenges include causal complexity, abundance of rare variants, and paucity of dataTo move from diagnostic to prognostic genomic healthcare, must first compare many genomes, in context of phenotypeBut genomes still costly, so researchers struggle to gather enough to informatively compare1 genome sound and fury signifying…something?.
