Our Approach

The Expanse Bioinformatics approach is based on comparing populations with and without a particular disease, or having achieved or not achieved a specific health goal, eliminating the common attributes that have an insignificant impact on the disease or goal, and locating the sets of genetic and behavioral attributes that are correlated with the disease or goal.

By including behavioral attributes in the data mining and finding individuals in each population that are genetically similar, we can identify the behavioral and environmental factors that have a clear impact for individuals based on their particular genetic makeup. We believe these techniques are applicable to a wide variety of problems ranging from cancer prevention to weight loss.
