YAHN: Blockchain & DNA? A Conversation with Dr. Mark Gerstein
Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry Professor, Dr. Mark Gerstein, published the paper ‘Storing and Analyzing a Genome on a Blockchain’, implementing an approach to use blockchain technology as a tool in genome analysis.

Due to the technical challenges related to storing genomes in a blockchain infrastructure, many blockchain genomics companies use blockchains as a log-keeping infrastructure. In the study, Dr. Gerstein’s group presented “…the first open-source, proof-of-concept private blockchain network, which allows for efficient storage and retrieval of personal genetic variants.”

Join Dr. Mark Gerstein and Sandra Ro, CEO of GBBC, for a discussion on the findings from Dr. Gerstein’s publication, and insights into how blockchain can be used to restore data ownership and integrity when it comes to genomics research and beyond.
