WHAT IS IT?: GeneDig is a web application that allows user-friendly access to genomics data and analysis. Currently, accessing genomic information is difficult due to the large amounts of sequence data and complex biological information involved. The rapidly decreasing costs of DNA sequencing make the need for user-friendly access to genomics all the more urgent as the number of sequenced organisms continues to increase and the era of personalized medicine and personalized genomics begins.
You can access GeneDig live at www.genedig.org. Try typing “breast cancer” on the search box if you have no idea how this works.
STATUS: GeneDig is currently active. I left GeneDig in September 2014, and at the time there were 5 developers and 2 designers working at the company.
