Title: The development of foundational projects led to rare variant discoveries for common/rare diseases
The emergence of multiple high-throughput data-rich technologies capable of characterizing genotypes and phenotypes, ranging from the population to cellular levels, has presented a paradigm shift in biomedical research. The bottleneck in scientific productivity has shifted from data production to integrative data analysis and interpretation. Integrating large-scale and high-dimensional molecular, physiological, and phenotypical data sets (including transcriptome, epigenome, microbiome, metabalome, proteome, imaging data and medical records) that are collected in a longitudinal manner across multiple studies holds great promise for identifying causal pathways from health to disease. These studies can reveal fundamental mechanistic insights as well as provide personalized approaches for disease prevention and treatment.
