Quotes

"We saw this as a medical service, which we have no relation with (on the surface). But reading letters, modifying data and providing some insight from analysis . . . this has a high affinity with the Internet and data analytics" said Masatoshi Fukasawa, chief executive officer of DeNA Life Science Inc., a subsidiary dealing with DNA
...you know every base in a genome, you can skip whole generations and use genomic information to predict how well an individual will do," he said. "Plantations serve as the initial tests where you can take that genomic information and calibrate those predictions. With those reference points, you can scale everything." Aside from Evans, Tuskan, and DiFazio, other authors on the study were Gancho Slavov of Aberystwyth University, UK; Eli Rodgers-Melnick of West Virginia...
"The Dalai Lama felt that a better understanding of the adaptation would be helpful not only to the Tibetan community but also to humanity at large" said Prchal. After the letter, 90 Tibetans from the US and abroad volunteered for the study
"These findings help us understand the unique aspects of Tibetan adaptation to high altitudes, and to better understand human evolution" said Josef Prchal, senior author and University of Utah professor of internal medicine
