Bodies of Data: Public Participation, Governance and the New Bioinformatics

Recent developments at the intersection of biological, information and communications technologies have opened the way to profound transformations in biomedical research and practice, laying the foundations for a more precise and personalized medicine. Technologies for eliciting and aggregating data from human bodies make it possible to build biobanks— collections of human biospecimens and data— of a scale and scope that were previously unimaginable. These collections will form a critical infrastructure for new approaches to understanding, diagnosing and intervening in human health and disease.
