Flaherty, Patrick J.
As technology used in everyday life becomes more mobile, the same can be said for DNA sequencing technology. There are many researchers and scientists searching for ways to make DNA sequencing technology more readily available for public use. However, as sequencing technology becomes more mobile, the analysis tools remain large and cumbersome. The design team was successfully able to create an application for iOS devices that receives data from a mobile sequencer and detects point mutations. The design team processed next generation sequencing data in .fasta format to identify mutations in the BRCA1 gene and display to a custom graphical user interface.
