F097 Digital health in South America 1/4: “Only 0.1% of the population has been sequenced so far” (Adrian Turjanski, Bitgenia, Argentina)

After a special series about digital health in Asia and Africa covered in 2019, the upcoming four episodes will present speakers from South America. A shoutout goes to Unity Stoakes and Jennifer Hankin from Startup Health, which connected me to the speakers in the upcoming episodes. All the companies are StartupHealth Transformers. 
In this discussion, you will hear Adrian Turjanski, Chief Science Officer at Bitgenia – an Argentinian startup bringing genomics closer to society, explains the current state of genomics research in South America; he talked about the difference between the whole genome and exosome sequencing, and the use of AI in genetic sequencing.
 In the upcoming episodes, you will hear from 
Luis Santiago – CEO of the Venezuelan healthcare IT company PEGASI, 
Javier Cardona, the CEO of the Colombian telemedicine company 1Doc3,
Paulo Fernando Buarque de Gusmão, CEO of Brazilian company OTAWA health.
