54 Gene enlists Paradigm4 app for African Health Information Ecosystem

Paradigm4 has signed an agreement with 54Gene allowing the latter to use the former’s Reveal Biobank App to explore, characterise and query 54Gene’s African Health Information Ecosystem, which is a curated data source of clinical phenotype and genetic information from which insights can be generated to assist the development of treatments and diagnostics.

Zachary Pitluk, Ph.D., Vice President of Life Sciences and Healthcare at Paradigm4, highlights how real insight comes, not from data collection, but from intelligent data curation, computation, and application.
