A digital genome acts as a supporter that facilitates instant access to trait sequences to resolve unending custom queries. Thus, aforementioned parameters will augment the market growth. Digital genomics deals with genes & their functions and assists in finding causes behind chronic disorders and also to resolve them. This technology has sparked a revolt in invention-centred research & systems biology to expedite insight of the most complex genetic systems.

Digital Genome Market

Genome market can be traced back to late 1926 when the term genomics was invented by Tom Roderick, a geneticist at the Jackson Laboratory. The 1st complete genome sequence of the human mitochondrion (16.6 kb), was registered in 1981. Also, with accomplishment of the Human Genome Project in 2003, every single human gene sequences were accessible in the public domain. Furthermore, in 2012, a modern technique named CRISPR has transformed genome editing, by making it much easier, cheaper, swifter & more precise than former methods. Digital genomics is swiftly advancing field in medical research and is estimated to transmute the healthcare approach in the near future. It enabled determination of individual distinctive genetic make-up at a very high speed and affordable price that have bought a revolution in healthcare sector.
