Genome maps can help establish genomic literacy and collaboration on a global scale.
Mapping software has been localized in a variety of languages with most web users being familiar with how to query and respond to information on a map. In the event there was an epidemic, mapping software can make critical information widely available in real time to save lives. Information on genetic markers for risk status, adverse drug reactions, or for persons having natural immunity can help mitigate an epidemic. Maps offering patients micro-consent and bi-directional communication can help facilitate rapid discovery.
