Genetic testing for a growing number of diseases in adults, children, and fetuses is rapidly becoming common medical practice. Genetic testing has saved the lives of hundreds of thousands of patients, ushering in the era of Precision Medicine. Genetic testing is so powerful in patient care that, for example, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists now recommends that all pregnant women, regardless of age, be offered genetic testing to determine the likelihood of a fetus is at risk for certain genetic diseases.
Like many other medical fields, gene sequencing for disease diagnosis has a greater than 50% false positive rate (on average) due to inaccurate interpretations. Inaccurate interpretations of genetics is a method and big data problem that CGI knows how to fix. As a 501(c)(3) (pending) non-profit charity, CGI needs financial support from donors to build and apply solutions globally to ensure that genetics patients receive the best diagnoses possible through accurate genetic variant interpretation. Once established, CGI will become self-sustaining. Please help us save and improve lives through donating generously to CGI’s mission.
