Article on GIGPAD

Geman technology website PC-Welt has an interesting article about the Gateway for Integrated Genomics-Proteomics Applications and Data (GIGPAD), which was set up by the Harvard Partners Center for Genetics and Genomics (HPCGG). (This article is in part of the site’s English language content.)

The role of GIGPAD is to carry out research on how an IT department can accelerate genetic and genomic science from discovery through to clinical care. According to the article:

“GIGPAD supports both research and clinical processes on the same platform so that research processes can be easily adapted when a clinically relevant breakthrough occurs. This allows a smooth transition from discoveries to translational medicine and provides IT support for new diagnostics sooner.”
