Discovering Yourself with Computational Bioinformatics

  1. 1. “Discovering Yourself withComputational Bioinformatics”Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute (RDI2) Distinguished SeminarRutgers UniversityNew Brunswick, NJMay 9, 2013Dr. Larry SmarrDirector, California Institute for Telecommunications and InformationTechnologyHarry E. Gruber Professor,Dept. of Computer Science and EngineeringJacobs School of Engineering, UCSD1
  2. 2. AbstractFor over a decade, Calit2 has had a driving vision that healthcare is beingtransformed into “digitally enabled genomic medicine.” Combined withadvances in nanotechnology and MEMS, a new generation of body sensors israpidly developing. As these real-time data streams are stored in the cloud,cross population comparisons becomes increasingly possible and theavailability of biofeedback leads to behavior change toward wellness. To put amore personal face on the "patient of the future," I have been increasinglyquantifying my own body over the last ten years. In addition to external markersI also currently track over 100 blood biomarkers and dozens of molecular andmicrobial variables in my stool. Using my saliva obtained 1million single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in my human DNA. My gutmicrobiome has been metagenomically sequenced by the J. Craig VenterInstitute, yielding 25 billion DNA bases. I will show how one can discoveremerging disease states before they develop serious symptoms using this BigData approach. Hundreds of thousands of supercomputer CPU-hours wereused in this voyage of self-discovery.
