Harnessing the Crowd to Make Better *** : Merck Friend Nails Down $5M to

| Sage is built on the premise that vast networks of genes get perturbed, or
| thrown off-kilter, in complex diseases like cancer, diabetes, and obesity.
| Scientists can just pick one faulty gene or protein and make a magic bullet
| to shut it down. But what if researchers around the world capturing genomic
| profiles on patients could get all of their data to talk to each other
| through a free, open database? A researcher in Seattle looking at how all
| 35,000 genes in *** cancer patients are dialed on or off at a certain
| stage of illness might be able to make critical comparisons by stacking
| results up against a deeper and broader data pool that integrates clinical,
| genetic, and other molecular data from peers in, say, San Francisco, New
| Haven, CT, or anywhere else.
