According to an ecology study in 2021, as much as only 3% of the earth's surface remains unexplored. Of this percentage, a large part corresponds to the Americas and more specifically to the Amazon basin.

In the 21st century, tribes still continue to be discovered in Brazil in complete isolation from the world, providing a new perspective on how people lived in the Neolithic era.

It is quite The Amazonian tribes are likely to have originated from the migration of a flow of people that crossed the Bering Strait. Process that occurred during the Ice Age about 10,000 years ago and settled in the jungle.

Caribbean

The Caribbean is located in Mesoamerica. It has a large number of islands, some of them larger (large antilles) and others smaller (small antilles). The oldest evidence of human life is found on the island of Trinidad..

On the other hand, it seems likely that Christopher Columbus arrived for the first time at an island in the Bahamas, Guanahani. This fact is still a matter of debate.

The Carib ethnicity disappeared with the arrival of the Europeans. Due to miscegenation, some physical characteristics can still be found in populations of the Lesser Antilles.

This territory was the working place of countless pirates who, between 1640 and 1680, were ready to pillage and claim a good booty. Gradually, the Caribbean islands became independent of the colonial countries, so that there are numerous small island states throughout the region.

Digestive Medicine

For digestive clinics or physicians. Provides information on the genetic predisposition to develop diseases of the digestive system- such as Chron's, Inflammatory Bowel Disease among many others - as well as intolerances. This supports a possible early diagnosis and preventionThe results of this study are very positive, allowing for more precise and personalized interventions to improve the quality of life of the patients.

Cardio

The applicability and importance of the PRSs in cardio is endorsed by the American Heart Association (AHA). The applicability of PRS is made possible thanks to this tool that helps in the cardiovascular disease prevention: identifying patients with a higher genetic risk of developing conditions such as diabetes, thromboembolism, hypercholesterolemia, and coronary artery disease (CAD), among others, enabling early interventions and preventive measures to improve patients' cardiovascular health.

Biobanks, Pharmacies and CROs

Access and consultation of genetic data relevant to health and pharmacology. Thanks to this tool, it is possible to know the predisposition of patients to suffer adverse effects and what dose adjustments are necessary for more than 150 drugs, thus improving safety, efficacy and treatment personalization. This information is backed by Stanford University and approved by the FDA and gives solutions for biobanks, and research organizations.

Fitness and wellness centers

Genetic analysis allows for the design of personalized training programs that, taking into account genetic characteristics focused on the world of sports, such as muscle fiber types and predisposition to injuries, maximize performance and reduce the risk of injuries. Additionally, by considering genetic factors related to sleep and longevity, recommendations can be offered for a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.
