What is GENOME LINK API and how does it works?

GENOME LINK API is a simple API solution to integrate user's genetic traits information into applications such as iOS/Android or web apps. It also enables developers to integrate a DNA-personalized aspect to their existing services through access to our comprehensive annotation database. Genetic insights available through the annotation database include: Physical Traits, Food and Nutrition, Personality, Intelligence, and Fitness.


History and background of the Genomics field
The whole genome is a complete set of more than 6 billion "letters" of the DNA of a human, which includes all of its genes. 15 years ago, it took 15 years and cost $3 billion to sequence ONE whole human genome. However, the advancement of sequencing technology has dramatically reduced the cost to $1,000. Soon, it will cost less than $100.

Judging by the striking speed of technological advancement, we envision a near future where every single person will own his or her own genetic code. But we have no idea what that world would look like, and what kind of information, insights, and potential we can uncover from within our very own bodies.

Today for the whole genome is like the 90s for the Internet. Though the Internet had gained mass adoption, everyone was still scrambling to figure out what the Internet could be used for. Nobody imagined that revolutionary tech giants like Google or Facebook would be born 10 years later.
