Genomics is a field that studies the genome, to understand how an organism works, and what is the result of interactions between genes and environmental influences on them. While the genome is the genetic material that becomes the blueprint or the design of a living thing. This information is inherited from generation to generation and stored in DNA, or in some viruses, in RNA.The size of the genome is expressed in bp or base pair, ie the number of nucleotide pairs in the DNA.Humans have about 3 billion bp in its genome.
Currently genomics has a large role in various fields, ranging from health, agriculture, environment, industry and the development of science. By studying genes, people can find solutions to many fundamental problems in many areas of life.For example, in the medical field, genomics may be helpful in improving the quality of disease diagnoses, identifying predisposition to certain diseases (eg type 2 diabetes, huntington disease, etc.), detecting viruses and disease-causing bacteria, developing drugs adapted to one’s genetic information (also called ‘personalized medicine’, such as the use of genetic markers to help determine the dosage of War ¬ farin, anti-blood clotting drugs, determine the type and dosage of drugs for cancer, etc.), or monitor lifestyle and environmental influences on human genomes and health.In the environmental field, genomics helps to find more sustainable sources of energy such as biofuels, control pollution, decontaminate waste-affected areas (also called bioremediation, such as microbes used to help clean up oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico), monitor biodiversity and identification of new species.In the field of agriculture genomics can be used to develop plants that are more resistant to pests, diseases, and the environment, can also be used to help identify pests, develop nutrient-rich food crops, or develop better quality and resistant to disease, and so forth.
shivom.io wants to create the largest genomic data-hub on the blockchain where users can be able to donate their genomic data and have control over their data, they will decide what to do with their data. They could decide to share it freely or sell it to any organizations for any clinical research in exchange for OmiX token, this will help the research organizations to improve the healthcare delivery. Shivom is bringing together two revolutionary technologies, Genomics and Blockchain, so as to take advantage of the best they have to offer. This will enable them to provide a safe, secure platform to store genetic data and improve health and well-being. Users will be able to access a global precision medicine platform that allows for the anonymous sharing of genetic information that may eventually help cure complex diseases.
They project is ambitious to say the least. Shivom plans to create the largest genomic and health data hub around the globe by combining blockchain, genomic DNA sequencing, artificial intelligence and cryptography to power secure and personalized medicine.This will enable people from all over the world to have their genome sequenced and securely stored, and the ecosystem will offer an open web-marketplace for providers to add their apps and services alongside advanced data analytics.By following the core principles of collaboration and integrity, people will have the unique opportunity to own, manage and monetise their genomics and health data.
And that’s not all, as Shivom builds this global healthcare ecosystem, underprivileged and low-income countries can be reached and help can be provided where such services have not been previously available. This will be truly revolutionary for the future of healthcare.Through innovative solutions, Shivom will shared value for individuals, not-for-profit organizations, governments, and for-profit entities alike.Shivom has even partnered with top developers and healthcare organizations, and technology companies and big pharma are already lining up to take advantage of our unique genomics and healthcare approach. As Shivom scales up and goes global, you can be sure that more partnerships already in development.
Unlike before research organizations are limited to small number of genomic data which have resulted into inconsistency in healthcare delivery this is because people respond differently to treatment but with Shivom platform research organizations will use it to gather large amount of genomic data they want to carry out clinical research.
Shivom platform will benefit everyone using the platform;
- For research organizations : They can easily gather any amount genomic data they want and help them reduce cost
- For genome data donors : They will earn OmiX token for sharing their genomic data to any research organizations.
OmiX token is utility token that will fuel Shivom platform, it will enable buying, trading, incentivizing and other services on the platform.
Shivom already have a working prototype with the beta version of the platform set to be launch on Q2 2018. I also like project that already have a working project or MVP, this will prove to the investors that they can actually build the project, I am not a fan of projects that are idea on the white paper and they would want to rise millions of dollars. Shivom already have a product and you can sign up for their alpha trial.
