Software from Bolzano has revolutionised genetic research worldwide
The success story of the method that became international standard technology
Today, completely sequencing the genome of an individual human being is still time-consuming and cost intensive. However, with technology developed by a team of researchers from Eurac Research and Medizin Uni Innsbruck, DNA analyses have been drastically simplified and costs reduced by 50-100 times. Currently the largest sequencing study in the world is using the technology that was born in Bolzano.
