Institute for Systems Biology head Leroy Hood presented vignettes from last year's pilot project, laying the groundwork for more widespread wellness-focused work.

The funds will support three collaborative projects to develop bioinformatics tools for research and clinical use. 

In April, Butte became director of UCSF's Institute for Computational Health Sciences and executive director of clinical informatics for UC Health Sciences and Services. 

The method, published in Nature Biotechnology this week, could work for other long-read data, such as from Oxford Nanopore's MinIon. 

The partners will use Cypher's software to diagnose rare diseases in the Clinic's unique patient population, which includes Amish and Mennonite patients.
