how DreamLab works.
DreamLab is an android app that utilizes the time your phone is idle so it can analyze genetic cancer data. You can choose what you want to analyze, such as breast cancer or lung cancer data. It does use your data plan (unless you have Vodaphone in Australia), but such practices have been used before with success. Utilizing the power of smartphones would likely be a new innovation in research, as it liberates labs from simply having to use dedicated (super) computers, and crowd sourcing is free.
