The Genome Supermarket

An idea for a library that maps genomes to emerging biological properties, to place humanity at the wheel of evolution/life.

This year I have come to the conclusion that the molecule is the new bit, because now we can read and edit the code of life, thanks to advances in genome sequencing and editing. This means we now have a platform to co-create with nature. Over the coming decades, we have a shot at eliminating illness and restoring and preserving the health of our planet, if only we can gather the appropriate data. We also need to make sure we pay attention to all the ethical concerns involved.

map(genome=>biological emergence)

The raw material for this revolution will be biological information. We need to acquire a corpus of data rich and extense enough to understand what biological properties emerge from what genomes, in order to be able to transform this information into value along the biochain. This could be attained by simply mapping genomes to the resulting biological emergence and then applying the relevant data science techniques. The implications of such a mapping at its fullest expression would be vast and world changing. It would enable us to take the steering wheel of evolution- terrifying and inspiring at the same time.
