PrimerLife Celebrates Anniversary of DNA Discovery with Launch of New Social Network
Date:2/27/2013

Mountain View, California (PRWEB) February 27, 2013

Sixty years ago, a team of scientists led by James Watson and Francis Crick announced a discovery that led to a change in the way people viewed their bodies and revolutionized approaches in health maintenance and treatment. It was in February 28, 1953 when the two biologists discovered the molecular structure of deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA, which led to a better understanding of genetics and its relationship with diseases.

Significantly, PrimerLife announced the launching today of a new personalized health social networking platform that will help people understand “what is genetics” and what it means for their personal health. The network, http://www.PrimerLife.com, enables people to predict possible diseases using genome science and deliver tailored health media that helps patients face the challenges of genetically borne diseases. Considered to be the first of its kind in the world, PrimerLife.com showcases how genetics and social networking technology can work hand-in-hand to create positive impacts for human health, allowing patients to connect with genetic counselors and genetic health experts to personalize online prevenative health care.

“We’re on a mission to save the world from disease by creating the open health graph, and I’m really proud of the revolutionary product our team has created,” announced Brinkley Warren, Co-Founder of PrimerLife.com. “Today’s beta launch is the first iteration of that vision, and a step towards the future of personalized health and wellness.”

According to Warren, PrimerLife.com combines advanced genome science, genetic counseling and social networking software to launch a revolution in personal health and wellness, leveraging on the strength of citizen science. “PrimerLife is not just for patients,” added Warren, “but is also the world’s first online community, exclusive to genetic health professionals like genetic counselors.”

Co-Founder Sergey Musienko has this to add: “We want to empower the public to transform themselves into healthy super heroes and empower a revolution in collaborative citizen science. We are a team of international entrepreneurs with a big vision and we hope people are as excited as we are to create the future of personal health.”
