Biotech International: “The Universal Genetics Database”

In many empirically intensive fields, researchers spend much of their time marshalling, formatting, and moving impenetrable blocks of data from one place to another. To solve this problem and pave the way for future-proof development, the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health teamed up with MAYA Design, a research and technology lab spun out of Carnegie Mellon University. The result is the first prototype of a Universal Genetics Database, which automatically combines background information from genetic databases with experimental results in particular studies.
