Dec, 7th 2017 4:43 am, Article Recommended by Dr. J. Smith

The authors believe that, while the study offers novel approaches for forensics, the work has serious implications for data privacy, deidentification and adequately informed consent. The team concludes that much more public deliberation is needed as more and more genomes are generated and placed in public databases. For the IRB approved study, 1,061 ethnically diverse people ranging in age from 18 to 82 participated by having their genomes sequenced to an average depth of at least 30x. Continue reading

The Limits to Human Longevity, or Lack Thereof Fight Aging!

Nov, 21st 2017 8:43 pm, Article Recommended by Dr. J. Smith

This open access paper is a good resource if you happen to want a list of references to the mainstream scientific discussion of the past twenty years regarding trends in human life expectancy, and the predicted future of those trends. It is somewhat myopic beyond that in the sense that it gives little credit to the idea that the trend might continue or increase, as a result of future technological progress in medicine Continue reading

Statement from Human Longevity Inc. on PNAS Paper on Face …

Nov, 12th 2017 9:45 am, Article Recommended by Dr. J. Smith

September 5, 2017 As outlined in a peer reviewed study recently published in the journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), Human Longevity researchers set out to see what traits could be predicted and thus used to identify individuals applying machine learning algorithms to whole genome data, without assuming any additional information such as age, sex, and ethnic being shared alongside the genome. The study centered on 1,061 people from diverse ethno-geographic backgrounds. The authors readily acknowledged that this was a very small cohort and that much larger cohorts would be needed to make much more precise predictions and identifications. Continue reading
