Genome: Silos, Hacking Privacy, Collaboration

DNA data is a biometric and hence in theory identifiable even if made “anonymous”. As sequencing costs continue to drop, DNA banks and genomic data silos continue to build up rapidly. Would it accelerate human betterment if we were to build a collaborative genomic analysis platform that protects patient privacy, allows researchers to bring best of breed analysis methods, and provides easy-to-administer access and risk management protocols? Is this a moon shot?
