Smartphone Application Secures DNA Data

A smartphone application developed at the University of California, Irvine, lets users securely store their DNA data on a mobile device and access it when necessary. GenoDroid is an Android application that encrypts the information so that only small portions of the user’s genetic data are available at a given time. Only the test results are disclosed, which means the user’s personal genetic information remains secure and private. The application could be used for genetic testing and custom drugs as well as secure paternity tests. The UC Irvine researchers worked with Palo Alto Research Center and New York Institute of Technology scientists. They published their results in the Association for Computing Machinery’s Proceedings of the 2012 ACM Workshop on Privacy in the Electronic Society.
