Clopidogrel (Plavix)
Reduces blood clots. Treats heart attack and stroke

DNA Sequencing Q: Best way to live a long time?

A: Pick good parents! Every Disease
is a
Rare Disease... Stephen Kingsmore &
Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine prepare samples
sequence DNA
digital analysis 4.5 hrs
25.5 hrs
20.0 hrs ~ $10 000 per case
"very helpful" in 7 out of 9 cases so far Innovation Lessons
from being in
an exponential business Find an exponential trend,
then hitchhike A prototype beats a plan Product Development Process (PDP) typical product:
18 month development cycle,
9 month market life

make new & rev old products
core team leaders involved from start
phase-gated milestones
manage technical and business risk Nothing fades faster than last year's technology 2008
$500K Today
$1 marginal cost,
market segmentation
& value-added services 1 human genome + interpretation
= $5000

4 human genomes, raw data
= $6000

1 human exome
= $1000

1 human "gene scan"
= $99 Closing Thoughts In the future,
if it is made out of atoms,
you will make it with biology. What does your industry
make or use? Biology as Technology Batten Disease Finding Ends a Diagnostic Odyssey for California Family

Hallmarks of Cancer:
The Next Generation

Cell, March 2011 Singularity
University Acromegaly ostreolin
peptide somatostatin analog
Genentech deal for $545M Underdiagnosed
Difficult to diagnose
Presents in adults Genetic cause!
aryl hydrocarbon receptor interacting protein (AIP)
chief cause? of pituary tumors Companion
Diagnostic? as part of full genome scan version 3:
Illumina Custom OmniExpress+ BeadChip
Assays about 1,200,000 SNPs Gene Scan Gene Sequence most interesting/best known
1.2 million bases
0.04% almost all
3.2 billion bases
100% DNA Microarrays Tools What can you do about
being at risk for
an unpreventable disease?!? It turns out, lots of things:

prevention - vitamins, avoid UV
testing - Amsler grid
new opthamologist
investigate clinical trials
support research
don't put off that trip to the Louvre... Try it... So What? Personal Example When I first found out about
my AMD risk
it was
"untreatable" & "incurable"
but Genentech
now has 2 treatments available footnote or need to unmake? What's Next People Teams Interdisciplinary Innovation Lessons

computers Democratization
Biotechnology How fast can you get to
"Hello World"
with 2 guys & a laptop in a garage? a hackerspace for biotech

First and largest biohacker lab in the world

Committed to making biotech
accessible, affordable, and open to everyone

a place to "experiment with friends"

501c3 all-volunteer community lab, supported by monthly memberships and classes Let's do that for biotech! iGEM 2004 international
competition iGEM World Jamboree 2010 We teach
classes... bioprinter project We build things.. OpenPCR $599 DNA Copy Machine We mentor the
next generation
of scientists
and technologists We support inventors
and entrepreneurs We take safety
and security
seriously In the last year,
19 startup companies
have done work
and recruited partners
at BioCurious We build
community BioCurious/FBI
Joint Conference on
June 12-16, 2012 http://openpcr.org/ Garage Labs When we talk about garage labs
in Silicon Valley, we aren't kidding... Helixis Real Time PCR Industry: $30,000
Helixis: $13,900 How does
sound? The Biotech
is Here! If you've got: Who wants to build something? Dremelfuge Centrifuge = $57 >$500 on Shapeways used, on eBay Research Tools Better, Cheaper, Faster US$750000, a PhD in molecular biology, and a fully equipped lab Weird Indicators / Inflection Points What do
we do? iGEM Inaugural Competition, 2004 More tools in more hands
More Breakthroughs Watching in

24 hour business plan Funding VCs to Angels to F&F (Grandma) Crowd-Funding (Everyone's Grandma) Non-Dilutive Funding (SBIR/STTR) "I don't think these individuals were pledging money because they thought they were gonna make a million off of it. They wanted to support the brand that they liked. [...] What I see on crowdfunding sites, as they exist now, is you have an idea that you like. Could be your local coffee shop, could be your favorite cupcake. And you invest in it because you believe in the product, not because you're gonna make a million." - Patrick McHenry (R-NC) "No Funding" Strategies Model to Reality
