How does Genome Link work?
The technology and information presented are very interesting. I've poked through the test user data as well, thanks for that.
My question is about genome sequencing as it related to this software. As I understand, while we've finally decoded the genome we still are unclear about how it all works together. How is Genome Link able to say that "I like red wine" or that "i'm predisposed to breast cancer" or that "I'll have red hair". Some of those seem more straightforward traits (red hair), some seem like maybe a complex relationship of traits (cancer) and some seem difficult to ascertain how many genes or which ones may be involved in how much I like red wine.
How did you guys settle on these particular traits for the API? How accurate are they? And what is next for the API - what other information will be opened to devs over the next 6, 12, 18 months?
I realize some of these may not be possible to answer right now, but I love the technology and appreciate the information. thanks.
