The best out of data
Huge amounts of data are generated in diagnostics. Not all of them can be used clinically. Our bioinformatics evaluates and analyzes the processes and changes from health data with self-programmed applications and with the help of fast and modern computers. This results in valuable information that can be used to reliably identify the causes of diseases, comprehensively treat patients and develop new drugs.
For this reason, bioinformatics plays an important role in medical care. Genetic testing and personalized medicine are inconceivable without bioinformatics. Bioinformatics combines technical and biological competencies. Because it is crucial to understand the underlying data 100 percent. Only then is it possible to develop an algorithm that delivers the highest information content from the data. This enables false-positive data to be reduced. This is a particular challenge in whole exome sequencing and whole genome sequencing. In addition to identifying the correct genetic variants, the aim is to minimize false-positive variants so that false statements do not occur and samples are evaluated promptly. For example, in people suffering from leukaemia or in patients whose transplantation depends on a prompt result. Bioinformatics is an important pillar of medical care. A solid and flexible information system can only be created through well thought-out planning and, above all, interdisciplinary communication, implementation and interlinking of all departments involved. For results of high clinical benefit.
