Biochips for early detection of diseases


(approx. 150 words)
Please describe the Wild Card (approx. 150 words)
The biochips are envisioned to “prophesize” potential predisposition to, or diagnose the early onset of human diseases, paving the way for advances in personalized health care. Such a clever chip may be implatnt to everybody already in childhood. The holder of the chip then may periodicaly check gained information through specialised software and get up-to-date inofmration about his health. Strong security measures - technical and legal - are implemented to minimalize the posiibilty of misuse of biochip personal data by else unauthorized pearson.
