Idea Details

Idea Name: SNP Detector
Slogan: Personalized Medicine
Startup Domain: Good healh & well-being
Abstract:
    SNPs (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms) are responsible for 80% of the genetic variation between 2 given individuals. An economically feasible SNP detector can guide medical decision making.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    10 Million SNPs have been discovered Genetic studies of Pakistani population are lacking An SNP machine can help understand genetics of the Pakistani population to further the progress of personalized medicine; variations in response to drugs and co-relation of genes with specific diseases.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Pakistani Caregivers Cancer patients = 148,000 Cancer Patients/ year Asthmatic patients Research Institutes
How will the solution works
    A SNP database must be set up using information already published. A machine shall be designed with voltage fluctutations in response to various biomolecules that pass through it (DNA, Amino Acids) that can be used to sequence patient genomes. The voltage change, in response to specific biomolecules can then be translated into electric signals and crossed against the already available database. The information recieved can be used to further the progress of population genetics in Pakistan.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    SNP Machines are still in their infancy so currently no such products exist as per my knowledge. However, the rapidly emerging machine learning technology holds great promise for this health-care changing device in the future.
