Asia’s 23andme, Genomic
Information-based Company EDGC
We have faced numerous changes at the fourth industrial revolution transforming our society.
After the beginning of genomics from Human Genome Project finished in 2003, it has been 16 years. Now, we are in the era of ‘Precision Medicine’ to prevent and treat diseases using personal genetic information for medical purposes.
With research going even further than the standard reference genome map, we now research the hidden secrets and functions of each gene in this big data. At the center of the era of personal genetic information, to understand more about genes means to depart from the existing medical system called ‘standard medical treatment’ and to be close to personalized prescription.
This shows that the medical and health paradigm has been changing fast, that we prepare for more effectively treating disease such as cancer, and that we approach exercise and diet as personal genetic information.
How is the era of 100-year life? If you know your enemy and yourself, you can win every battle. We need to know the information of our body first to answer the question. EDGC will bring the change of health paradigm and lead to realize the precision medicine so that everyone takes the era of healthy 100-year life using their genetic information.
