Digital technology in Genomics – where are we and where are we heading to?
Bright Building - Manchester Science Park, Pencroft Way, Bright Building, Manchester, M15 6GZ
As personal Genomic medicine is moving from clinical research to a pathway of care and awareness of genetic testing is increasing, this meetup will discuss the role of digital in this space.
Genomic data requires powerful computing and complex analytical and programming capabilities. It provides detailed and unique insights into every person, with the potential to identify an individual’s risk of developing diseases or level of response to treatment.
Could genomic medicine exist without integrated digital systems or something to that effect? What is the next step in genomic medicine? Will artificial intelligence perform a more involved role in this type of medicine?
