Topic: Deciphering the Genome: Community Driven Approaches
Speaker: Heidi L. Rehm, Associate Professor, Brigham & Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School
With the plummeting cost of sequencing, genetic data is becoming increasingly available for use in the diagnosis, treatment and prediction of disease. To ensure successful use of genomics in medicine will require the community to come together to share data and contribute to the collective curation of that data for clinical and research use. This talk will focus on national and international efforts to develop improved standards and resources to support genomic medicine.
