Engineering microbial consortia to enhance b... [Front Microbiol. 2012] - PubMed - NCBI

by

Brune KD, Bayer TS.
"In natural environments microorganisms commonly exist as communities of multiple species that are capable of performing more varied and complicated tasks than clonal populations. Synthetic biologists have engineered clonal populations with characteristics such as differentiation, memory, and pattern formation, which are usually associated with more complex multicellular organisms. The prospect of designing microbial communities has alluring possibilities for environmental, biomedical, and energy applications, and is likely to reveal insight into how natural microbial consortia function. Cell signaling and communication pathways between different species are likely to be key processes for designing novel functions in synthetic and natural consortia. Recent efforts to engineer synthetic microbial interactions will be reviewed here, with particular emphasis given to research with significance for industrial applications in the field of biomining and bioremediation of acid mine drainage."

Big Data + Healthcare = Big Win | DataStax | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

With last year’s McKinsey report saying that the value big data brings to healthcare and related companies is $300B, it’s no surprise that healthcare IT leaders are moving rapidly towards the adoption of big data technologies that it is hoped will help them realize significant benefits.

INnovative Training Environment for Researchers Combining the
Resources  Of  Statistical Science, INformatics  &  Genetics

 

        INTERCROSSING is a consortium of universities and SMEs (small to medium enterprises) We are an EU funded ITN

INTERCROSSING offers 13 very generously funded 3-year jobs with PhD-level training.
The level of the stipend differs between countries but significantly exceeds the normal PhD grant in most countries.
We accept candidates from any Country in the World Qualifications in outline (for a formal description of the conditions see : http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/mariecurieactions/itn_en.html
In outline candidates should
Have received their first degree qualifying them for PhD training since October 2008 Not have a PhD before November 2012 (we anticipate most candidates will receive PhD training as part of INTERCROSSING) Meet the residency requirements, designed to encourage mobility (Essentially, they cannot be employed in a country where they have been resident for 12 months in the last 3 years)

The projects will start in Oct 2012

The jobs will fund PhD studentships and/or rigorous training in three disciplines hardly ever found together any one young scientist:
population genetics, informatics and statistics. Further details are below.

Prediction: A Shazam app for heartbeats

Prediction: A Shazam app for heartbeats | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

Soon enough people will be able to record a snipped of their own heart sounds, upload it to an analytics engine through a smartphone app, and receive a diagnosis. Sort of like a Shazam app for heart sounds.

 

That is, at least, according to Steinar Pedersen, Founder of Tromso Telemedicine Consult, who made the prediction — among many others — during his closing keynote Monday afternoon at the HIMSS mHealth Symposium in Copenhagen, Denmark. (I was honored to kick things off with an opening presentation on the mobile health landscape, but steered cleared of any prognostications.)

 

Shazam is a smartphone app that boasts more than 200 million downloads — it claims 1.5 million more download it each week — that helps people identify the music they hear. The idea is pretty simple: Hear a song at the mall or in the car and use Shazam to record a short piece of it and receive the artist, song, and album name. The app makes money a few ways but primarily by connecting users to various online music stores to buy the music they discover.

A Shazam app for heart sounds would work in a similar way except instead of using the smartphone’s microphone, users would use the smartphone’s camera, which can record heart rates via apps like Azumio’s Instant Heart Rate, or a peripheral medical device like AliveCor’s (not yet FDA cleared) iPhoneECG. Unlike Shazam’s database of (almost) all the world’s music, a repository of identified heart sounds that would be necessary to undertake a Shazam for the heart is not yet in existence.

 

Interestingly, cardiologist Dr. Leslie Saxon, who heads up USC’s Center for Body Computing, announced an initiative last month that aims to create just such a database. In a sense her hoped for database, dubbed EveryHeartBeat.org, turns the Shazam model on its head. People will record their heart sounds and upload them to EveryHeartBeat, but early adopters may not receive much in return at first. Saxon told FastCompany that over time “there could be all sorts of abnormalities that EveryHeartBeat could pick up with relatively simple algorithms” including atrial fibrillation, which typically produces no symptoms. Saxon said the platform could enable “unbelievably predictive analytics across populations.”

 

During her TEDMED talk, Saxon referred to EveryHeartBeat as a “Facebook of Medicine”, but it seems much more like Shazam based on its core value proposition: What is this I’m hearing?

Saxon told MobiHealthNews during an interview this week that her team is in “super stealth mode” and cannot discuss details about EveryHeartBeat yet, but she has been floored by the amount of interest the project has already garnered — and the video of her TEDMED talk hasn’t event hit the Internet yet. She aims to launch the platform sometime in 2013.

 

A few years ago another group of researchers made headlines for discussing the potential of another big data project funded by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. As we wrote way back in November 2009:

 

“Health workers know the difference between a wet cough and a dry cough; between a productive or non-productive; and between a voluntary and involuntary cough. If one Bedford, MA-based start-up, STAR Analytical Services succeeds, soon health workers will be able to use their smartphones to diagnose patients by recording and automatically analyzing their coughs instead. STAR’s software would record a patient’s cough and compare it to a database of pre-recorded coughs that include the sounds of respiratory diseases from people of both sexes, and various ages, weights, etc. The database only has several dozen patients’ coughs on record right now, but they estimate they will need about 1,000 before the software becomes reliable.”

 

More recently apps that promise to help users determine whether moles and other skin growths were potentially harmful have hit appstores. Last summer we wrote about a startup in Romania led by two dermatologists that created just such an app, called Skin Scan:

 

“Skin Scan works by first taking a picture of a mole using the iPhone camera; the app then uses a proprietary algorithm to analyze the fractal-like shapes which exist in human skin. The algorithm then decides if the shape of the mole is developing normally, or abnormally into a potentially cancerous melanoma. Abnormal growth is noted to the user, and there is a feature to search for nearby doctors within the app.”

 

Overall this is a promising and long-anticipated trend: Big data and analytics are just starting to pair with the ever increasing number of mobile health devices, apps and sensors coming online.
