+Matthias Samwald presented work on March 21 in a podium presentation
at the AMIA 2012 Summit on Translational Bioinformatics [1]. The work
was from the Pharmacogenomics for Clinical Research task force [2] (in
which I participate), of the W3C Health Care and Life Sciences
Interest Group [3]. Michel Dumontier, Joanne Luciano, and Robert
Freimuth were also present at AMIA TBI and several from the task force
contributed to the presentation. The presentation included our
recently published vision of an informatics infrastructure [4] (with
"Semantic Web Inside"), as well as Matthias's idea: a code that points
clinicians to genetic information about the patient that can be used
to select drug therapies and dosages in order to increase safety. The
medicine safety code [5] should help to raise awareness of the
possibilities of personalized medicine.
