The DNA databases are well protected resources, as they have a large number of detailed fingerprints that may be employed to discover an individual from cancer, paternity tests, genetic predisposition up to criminal records. It also appears that RNA databases, a derivative of large genome studies are used in the identification of persons. The databases are available in journals and to the public, and have the information from large number of people worldwide.
Having these discoveries, the scientists can improve the health of a patient using the RNA and deep individual data. But this as well brings up some questions concerning the genomic privacy.
The study performed in New York at the Mount Sinai School Medical Department changes the RNA detection process inside out. Scientists Ke Hao and Eric E. Schadt discovered that to get the DNA of an individual by use of RNA data. Nearly all the studies revealed how the RNA relays the genetic information using DNA sequences. Read the full story
