TN Note: Again, there is no such thing as enough data for Technocracy. Genomic data is the ultimate invasion of privacy but that is exactly the point to Technocrats. Collection points include hospitals, doctors, blood-draw facilities and law enforcement. Genomic data is now routinely taken from newborns without the parents knowledge or consent. 

A new online portal would let scientists access vast amounts of genomic data from patients involved in heart, lung, blood and sleep research studies.

The hub, called GenPort, is supposed to help researchers look into the results of several studies at once, tracking individuals in different trials who might share the same characteristics, known as “synthetic cohorts.”

The Health and Human Services Department is currently looking for small businesses who can help build that hub, so even researchers without informatics or genomics training can make “practical use” of data from cohort studies other scientists have already conducted.

GenPort’s software and tools will be “open source, transportable, and freely shared,” according to the HHS posting.

The cloud-based resource also aims to let researchers visualize and analyze that data.
