One of the goals of this study is to compile a biobank of patient genetic information that can be used by physicians to identify and study potential biomarkers in a patient's genetic code. Precision Health Biobank provides a unique opportunity to collect genetic data from thousands of patients with diverse medical histories. Researchers and physicians throughout the Stanford community can search through and filter data in Stanford Precision Health Biobank to obtain relevant information for different research projects.
Example 1. These graphs represent the number of patients that have been diagnosed with a circulatory disease. Stanford Precision Health Biobank has allowed researchers to acess information, such as this, in order to use in their research projects. By using the Cohort Discovery Tool, researchers can access informaiton on any diagnosis in the Stanford Precision Health Biobank.
Example 2. These graphs represent the number of patients that have been diagnosed with a respiratory disease. Respiratory disease can range anywhere from cystic fibrosis to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
