In this webinar, Dr. Michael Snyder of Stanford University discussed the use of genetics and genomics in predicting disease risk; what other types of big data can be collected on individuals; and how this data can be used to manage health.
Dr. Snyder demonstrated the value of big data in medicine in a personal way. In 2012, his research into his own genome predicted risk for metabolic disorders. It was a landmark study that demonstrated how big data can add granularity and precision in medicine.
