When it comes to bandwidth hogs, where do we begin? There exists a plethora of daily-use applications that fall into this category; with many more yet to hit the hot list as technologies evolve. Some congestions using Internet-based solutions include social media, video streaming content or home automation access. The healthcare industry has no shortage of these bandwidth hoarders. With the ever-growing compliancy requirements for using IP to transfer data, there becomes some concern over the use of IP based connectivity. For now, let’s evaluate genome data, since more and more healthcare researchers are recovering data from a human genome.
A human genome is the complete set of nucleic acid sequence for humans; encoded as deoxyribonucleic acid, for short DNA, a molecule that carries our genetic instructions. So you may be thinking,
“What would genetic researchers need to do with data networking?”
Within this DNA, researchers are trying to pull the info from a single individual to isolate medicine to that specific individual. This means a more precise medication without all the side effects from taking it. I can almost guarantee, each of us has sat watching the TV commercials, which take longer to list the FDA-required side effects versus what the medication will actually do for your body. What if researchers could curb those side effects and individualize a treatment plan for that person? Read more of this post
