Out of hardship, Frey sought a way to make a positive impact, and his deep learning background would be his secret weapon. “How can I make a difference to the next couple that shows up for genetic counselling and needs to figure out what’s going on genetically,” Frey said. “A billion dollars had been spent on the genome, it was obviously very important, but really people could not make sense of the genome.”
