First of all, Zenome team is ready to publish a new article about ZENOME NETWORK with the detailed description of our technology. In the beginning of the next week this article will be available for our community.
But before that, we decided to introduce you to the basic information, so you can read our article with a full understanding of what is going on here.
The existing problems of personal genomics [associated with the exponential growth of the amount of data] are aimed at creating an IT-infrastructure that allows free exchange of genomic data and corresponding meta-data, storing large amounts of data in a safe manner with preservation of privacy and would be independent of any public or private organizations. Since all the existing solutions based on distributed networks cannot fully solve these problems, we have developed our own stack of network protocols — Zenome Distributed Network, as the foundation for creating our own IT-infrastructure. In our development we solved the following technical problems:
- Peer Identification
- Peer communication. Messaging
- Routing and Switching
- Data transfer. Streams
It is worth noting that we have developed such a specification that would allow us to use the whole existing infrastructure of the Internet, over which our distributed Zenome network will be deployed. In our article (next week), we describe the key features of this Network.
In contrast to our competitors, we are creating not an exchange service for genetic data but a new network protocol for storing, exchanging and monetizing data.
Our competitors are using already existing solutions that are not perfect. But the launch of our protocol will allow us to be out of this competition.
How? They can use our distributed infrastructure to build their own services, because it will be even a more profound decision for them than the ones, that are described in their documentations right now.
