Biotechnology and Communication: The Meta-Technologies of Information

Following an introductory research of every shared meta-technological house, the e-book examines the effect of biotechnology on how we comprehend details in human verbal exchange, meta-technologies and the legislations, and communicative dimensions of biotechnology and gear. the range of views provided through the participants - who draw on theories from conversation, cultural stories, sociology, info technology, economics and legislations - makes transparent that informational meta-technologies are remodeling the subject material and context for learn and scholarship around the social sciences.

But as knowledge of the fetus and fetal development progresses by sequencing fetal DNA and RNA, new treatment opportunities will emerge. Tanaka (2010) labels two future concepts in medicine and health care (Slide 1-52): 1. “Deeper” towards individualized medicine: Omics-based medicine and systems will realize a new personalized and predictive medicine. 2. “Broader” towards ubiquitous health care: preventive medicine, ambient assisted living, and ubiquitous home health care and wellness. A new “translational informatics” plays an important role for deriving clinically meaningful information from the vast amount of omics data.

2000). Ubicomp in Health is promising (Varshney 2009) and may address such issues see Slide 1-35: Slide 1-35: Pervasive Health Computing An example for the application of Ubicomp in the area of Ambient Assisted Living: RFID technology for localizing elderly people, suffering from dementia (Holzinger et al. 2008b). A further example for Ubicomp technologies can be seen in the future care lab of the RWTH Aachen (Slide 1-37): An integrated set of smart sensor technologies provides unobtrusive monitoring of a patient’s vital health functions, such as: (a) A smart floor, providing location tracking of multiple persons, fall detection, and weight measurement.

With the launch of open data government initiatives the open data movement gained momentum (Shadbolt et al. 2012) and some speak already about an Open Knowledge Foundation (Molloy 2011). Consequently, there are plenty of research challenges on this topic (Yildirim et al. 2013). ” Hence, it varies during time, during the course of diseases and differs among sites of diseases, unlike the “germ line” genome sequences in tailored medicine which remain the same during the whole life. So, the Omics information lies at the intermediate level of the hierarchy so that the relation to the clinical phenotype is much closer to bring about the predictive medicine.
