Biotechnology and Medicine

Tartu is the centre for biotechnology development and medicine in Estonia. For example, combining IT big data analyses and molecular biology data we get bioinformatics data that gives us shorter time to develop new products, lowers the cost of development and therefore treatment. Using big data analyses is perfectly being utilized in Genome Centre to develop gene cards and Clinical Decision Support Programs to calculate risks for different diseases.

Estonian government is aiming to implement personalized medicine on a national scale

The pilot program has been launched in 2015 combining the IT infrastructure solutions available in Estonia with the comprehensive, longitudinally recorded electronic health records and prescription data, together with the genetic information available in the Estonian Genome Center, these resources are cornerstones for national personalized medicine initiatives. This information can be combined for clinical use in disease risk assessment and medication response prediction.
