Personal, Dense, Dynamic Data (PD3) Clouds are a central resource of the lab in the support of scientific wellness, P4 healthcare and disease studies. Initial focus has been on the collection genomic, metabolomic, proteomic and gut microbiomic data, along with digital health measures from wearables and lifestyle questionnaires. However, in principal, any longitudinal data collected from individuals can be incorporated PD3 clouds to contribute to the global quantification and understanding of the individual for the purpose of tracking (and intervening in) health trajectories.
PD3 clouds and their use are described in recent seminal publications from the lab:
