Podcasters look for ‘big data’ solutions in bioinformatics


OMAHA, Neb. (Jan. 28, 2019)—UNeMed’s tech transfer podcast, “Innovation Overground,” published this morning its latest episode, “Bioinformatics is a superpower.”

In the latest episode, Overground hosts Joe Runge, Tyler Scherr and Charlie Litton, discuss the dawn of the “biotechnology century.” The crew also talk about the growing cottage industry of DNA sequencing and how all that new data can be used to keep us more healthy.

The episode discussed technology that can use this data to test for biomarkers, classify different cancers or diagnose colon cancer in the earliest stages.

Innovation Overground was created to help promote academic innovation and the technology transfer and commercialization efforts at the University of Nebraska and beyond. The podcast intends to examine what it takes to advance academic inventions and discoveries beyond the research bench and into people’s lives as “actual things on a shelf.”
