This program will provide you with a sense of confidence in medical practice, which will help you grow personally and professionally”

The scale and complexity of genomic data dwarf the measurements traditionally used in laboratory testing. In recent years there has been an enormous development of informatics to analyze and interpret DNA sequencing, and it has created a gap between biological knowledge and its application to routine clinical practice. It is therefore necessary to educate, disseminate and incorporate these informatics techniques among the medical community in order to be able to interpret the massive analysis of data from publications, biological or medical databases and medical records, among others, and thus enrich the biological information available at the clinical level.

This machine learning will enable the development of precision oncology, in order to interpret genomic characteristics and find targeted therapies, or to identify risks to certain diseases and establish more individualized preventive measures. A fundamental objective of the program is to bring students closer to and disseminate computer knowledge, which is already applied in other fields of knowledge, but has minimal implementation in the medical world, despite the fact that for genomic medicine to become a reality, it is necessary to accurately interpret the huge volume of clinical information currently available and associate it with the biological data generated after a bioinformatic analysis. While this is a difficult challenge, it will allow the effects of genetic variation and potential therapies to be explored quickly, inexpensively and with greater precision than is currently possible.

Humans are not naturally equipped to perceive and interpret genomic sequences, to understand all the mechanisms, pathways and interactions that take place within a living cell, nor to make medical decisions with tens or hundreds of variables. To move forward, a system with superhuman analytical capabilities is required to simplify the work environment and show the relationships and proximities between variables. In genomics and biology, it is now recognized that it is better to spend resources on new computational techniques than on pure data collection, something that is possibly the same in medicine and, of course, oncology.
