Estonian Genome Center - The promising future of Estonian healthcare

Publish date: 2013-02-06

Almost every human trait and disease is the result of interactions between genetic factors and the environment. In order to examine the connection between genetic information and its effects, the database of genetic materials of the representative part of the population can be gathered, analysed and the investigation of genes responsible for the given feature can be performed by comparison of genetic information with a group of people possessing it.

The process described above, is one of the main objectives of the Estonian Genome Project, a national gene bank proposed by Andres Metspalu, a professor of biotechnology at the University of Tartu. The Estonian Genome Project Foundation was established in 2001 with the aim to coordinate the Estonian Genome Project and to create the gene bank of Estonian population. The second goal of the project is to facilitate the personalised medicine by setting up the healthcare database, giving the Estonians an opportunity to access their own data.

In December 2009 the Gene Bank stored phenotype and genotype data of 400 000 gene donors with an aim to create the database representing 5 % of Estonian population. One of the commercial purposes of the project is to make the national healthcare more competitive in the Baltic Sea region by more efficient medical assistance, thus lowering expenditures.

The specimens of DNA are taken from donors in the form of 50 ml of venous blood. Subsequently, the samples together with the phenotype data collected from the donors are coded, ensuring privacy. Finally, DNA necessary for genotyping is isolated from blood and analysed. The database can be used for scientific research concerning the treatment of various illnesses, public health investigation and statistical purposes. What is especially interesting and makes the project more valuable, the studies indicate that the Estonian population is the representative of all European populations, so the outcomes of the investigations performed on the bases of Estonian Gene Bank can be generalised for the other Europeans.

The Estonian Genome Centre is engaged in a lot of scientific project. One of them, “IndiMed” is focused on the assessment of the impact of the implementation of individualized medicine on disease prevention and treatment in Estonia.

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there.

Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr Mohammed's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me.
