Study Goals and Objectives
DNA sequencing (also referred to as DNA mapping, genome mapping and gene mapping) is determined by the nucleotide bases A, T, C and G of DNA through sequencing methods. All organisms on Earth have genetic information in their DNA. Sequencing techniques make this process possible in the human genome.

There are between 50 million to 250 million nucleotide bases, which are broken down into templates that produce different length fragments. To separate these fragments, the technique agarose DNA gel electrophoresis is used. There are other processes used that will be discussed in this report in further detail.

Increasing accessibility to DNA sequencing is investigated in this report, together with the decreasing costs of the processes involved. Different DNA sequencing types will be studied, together with the various reasons individuals have their DNA sequenced. The report discusses healthcare programs worldwide and identifies the countries that are adopting DNA sequencing as part of their developing medical procedures.

For example, gene research is assisting asthma sufferers, as scientists have discovered 34 new genes whereby people with these genes are more susceptible to asthma and other allergies. Gene sequencing and studies in genetics rendered inactive by methyl molecules being attached to the DNA (i.e., methylation) are studied in this report.

The market for computational biology has just begun and the device market and apps market does not yet exist.
The current market is in the “funding” of the research and development of DNA sequencing. Without any current “live” applications of genomics in generalized healthcare, trials are currently being undertaken through, for example, the 100,000 Genomes Project in the U.K. to determine the viability of introducing DNA sequencing as a healthcare solution for the future.

It is forecast that in two to three years the market for patients being treated through their DNA will be generalized. It is therefore expected that using an attachment to a new silicon photonics mobile Android device that an individual’s DNA could be sent to the Helix app store and sequenced. The results will be available within one to three days.

The market for computational biology for mobile applications of DNA sequencing does not yet fully exist. The funding figures are included as an indication of a “start-up global business.” The funding therefore progresses the research and development side to indicate the future of this business and its potential outlets and market opportunities. The device market and mobile applications that go with this for computational biology are in their infancy, with a start date on July 24, 2017, with the advent of the Helix app store.

Due to the fact the market is in its infancy and for computational biology, clinical trials and feasibility studies are only currently being undertaken for the viability of introducing this into the generalized global healthcare market, market figures have estimated to 2022 to reflect this.

Due to the device market for computational biology being non-existent as it currently stands, the market has not been segmented into device type as this is currently only in the trial stage. Devices do, however, exist in this market and the cost to purchase the device(s) have been outlined in the report itself.

Contained in the report are samples of the devices/apps available, although as the report does not concentrate on this market specifically, the devices and apps themselves are not studied in detail in the report. What is studied is how the devices and mobile apps interact with each other to produce mobile applications of DNA sequencing.

Given that the market for computational biology is expected to be part of generalized global healthcare by 2022, the market figures have been estimated to take this into account.
