(LISTEN) Exclusive | Dr. Brandon Colby: Integrating Genetic Data into Software Applications (Apps) For Patients and Physicians To Use
Sequencing.com makes it easy to store, use and understand genetic data. We accomplish this through technology that integrates genetic data into software applications (apps). Sequencing.com allows you to turn genetic data into something useful.

In this very special DocPreneur Podcast Episode, episode 100, we sit down with physician, researcher, author and our friend, Brandon Colby, MD. Dr. Colby is the founder of Sequencing.com and author of Outsmart Your Genes.
“What would happen if a physician were to begin speaking to a patient’s future potential rather than their past performance?” adds Colby. “Where the practice of medicine may fall short, a story is often found in our DNA that will provide clarity. Instead of waiting for sickness to occur, the clarity provided by a patient’s DNA can empower a Concierge physician to create a personalized plan for optimizing each patient’s health and longevity.”
In this special 100th episode we discuss:
+ What Is Genetic Testing and Why Is It Important to Our Health?
+ What type of different DNA tests are available and how do you know what is accurate and actionable insight?
+ What type of reports are available?
+ What is Precision Medicine?
+ How will the future of patient care be impacted by personal genomics?
+ And so much more!
“The genetic revolution has already begun, and it is having far-reaching effects on healthcare right now,” said Brandon Colby, MD. “Our knowledge of how to use this information is increasing at an exponential rate. What this means is that we can now start to integrate genetics into our everyday lives. With comprehensive genetic testing, we launch an innovative strategy against disease, attacking it before it even manifests. Genetic testing, therefore, provides a new counter-offensive in our war against Alzheimer’s, cancer, heart disease, and many other diseases that have plagued our civilization for centuries. This is the most exciting, and potentially groundbreaking, medical development of this century.”
