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

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. 

We have millions of data or publications but when they are analyzed by physicians or biologists, the conclusions are totally subjective and relative to the available publications or data, which are prioritized arbitrarily. This generates partial knowledge, which is increasingly distanced from the genetic and biological knowledge available and supported by computation, so a giant step in the implementation of precision medicine is to reduce this distance through the massive analysis of available medical and pharmacological information.
