DNA Guide's Team

Founder's Log... Summer, 2016

DNA Guide consists of a group of co-inventors and friends who have worked together for a long time. We're committed to exercising proper stewardship over what might be a powerful technology.

This past year, DNA Guide lost a beloved Co-Founder, Saw Yu Wa. Saw Yu came to Silicon Valley from Burma and finished a Masters in GIS at San Jose State in the early 90's. She worked on many of the very first web based maps (Stanford Campus map, City of Oakland Crime Map, Sex Offender Map for Santa Clara County) and went on to build hundreds of prototypes over the years. More recently she was working on 3D spatial & topological analysis of full genomes. Her last project was a map of her own tumor dnapancreas.com .

Saw Yu was brilliant and kind, forever generous with her time and expertise. She will be missed!

As for the remaining team....I couldn't have hoped for a more patient and loyal group. I have no idea why you still take my calls and answer my emails. Hopefully, at some point, I'll actually be able to compensate you for all your efforts.

Gratefully and perhaps finally humble after all these years...
