Genetic research is opening the door to possibilities beyond our comprehension – personalised medicine, preventative treatment and even the complete eradication of hereditary conditions. But while scientists are busy collecting all the information they need to do these incredible things, to truly make these wonders of modern medicine a reality, the life sciences industry desperately needs to recruit hundreds, if not thousands, more data scientists. Here, we look at why computational scientists and mathematicians could hold the key to humankind’s greatest achievement:
Last week, Paramount Recruitment’s Eugene McDaid went stateside to attend the Boston Festival of Genomics. Here, he shares his thoughts and findings about the US biotech and pharma industries, the challenges they are facing and how the genomics scene in Boston compares to the UK:
