Abstract
Digital platforms play a critical facilitating role in the "changing models of biomedical research" and clinical care. Such platforms integrate disparate data sources and formats-”including genetic, health, genealogical, and increasingly lifestyle data-”into more accessible, searchable, and computationally efficient structures for basic scientific research, as well as for clinical care. Genetic platforms involve unprecedented data management challenges because of their scale and multidimensionality. Still, little research has been conducted on genetic platforms. Leveraging secondary data on three interlinked genetic platforms, we pursue a data perspective on platform evolution and entrepreneurial strategies. We contribute to the discussion on the design and evolution of digital platforms that considers responsible data use.
