Here is some interesting technology: carry your genome information with you wherever you go, thanks to an Apple iPhone and cloud computing:
With employees spread across five continents, effective mobile communications are essential for Illumina, a San Diego, CA-based biotechnology company that designs breakthrough tools for genetic analysis. Using iPhone, sales reps can track customers, executives can manage employees, and everyone can stay in touch. And soon Illumina will make it possible for consumers to carry their personal genomes with them on iPhone.
"Illumina is developing an iPhone application that will allow consumers to carry around their genomic information," says Jay Flatley, Illumina's President and CEO. "Part of it may be on the phone itself, part of it may be in the cloud that the phone would have access to. It would allow the customer to bring up the application and interact with it live in conjunction with their doctor."
