I’ve read your paper, Using Ethereum blockchain to store and query pharmacogenomics data via smart contracts, published in BMC Medical Genomics. And I’m very, very interested in your program and result. Could you share your program with me? I’m new in blockchain field and a standalone researcher, so I hope you may share the program and give me some advice.
GitHub link is on the paper and you can find below too
It’s freely available to everyone so you can share with anyone if you like
I found your above article quite instructive for a venture I am planning to launch that will harness the value of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology to develop an ecosystem for the community of patients, providers, and r esearchers concerned with stem cell therapies. I am in the process of drafting a use case for the currency I want to issue. My question is, how would I be able to actually use some variant of your smart contract for my system?
The paper is published and the code (contract) is freely available on github – if that’s what you’re asking for. If you could be a little bit more specific, we might be able to help you better.
I have access to your journal article. My question is how can I actually implement your fastQuery technical solution? I am not an informatics specialist by any means. The other thing is I am interested in developing algorithms that are useful for analysing laboratory and clinical data in this stem cell field. Maybe you can shed some light on how I might achieve this aim. And I guess you mean the code for the fastQuery solution? sorry didn’t catch that before.
In https://github.com/gersteinlab/idash19bc, GeneDrugRepoV2.sol is the contract for the fastQuery solution mentioned in the paper. Charlotte and I wrote a small, lay tutorial on how to run smart contracts here:https://thegccontent.wordpress.com/2020/04/13/a-practical-ethereum-and-multichain-blockchain-tutorial/ Github page also has information on how to run the implementation. I’m unfortunately not knowledgeable on the data collected in clinical settings related to stem cells so perhaps a more specificialized person in that field could be more helpful to you.
Q: Does pBAM work for methylation data?
A: The current version of pTools does not work for methylation data, but we are currently working on this issue. The next version will have support for methylation BAM files.
