GCD and IGES joint Symposium on Big Data Analytics for Genetics in Personalised Medicine 2017

  • Conference Call
  • The Genomics of Com­mon Dis­eases (GCD) com­mit­tee and the Inter­na­tional Genetic Epi­demi­ol­ogy Soci­ety (IGES) are pleased to announce a joint sym­po­sium titled “Big Data Ana­lyt­ics for Genet­ics in Per­son­alised Med­i­cine”.

    The inte­gra­tion of large-​scale human genomics and dis­ease phe­no­types data is offer­ing new oppor­tu­ni­ties for per­son­alised med­i­cine. The joint sym­po­sium will focus on recent devel­op­ments in ana­lyt­i­cal tools and resources that are facil­i­tat­ing big data inte­gra­tion, explo­ration, and usage in med­i­cine. It will offer a plat­form for sci­en­tists inter­ested in learn­ing and shar­ing inno­v­a­tive tools and inter­faces that improve up-​to-​date access to genetic data for mak­ing clin­i­cal decisions.

    The sym­po­sium will offer a valu­able train­ing ground and rich learn­ing expe­ri­ence for stu­dents and trainees, and pro­vide net­work­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties for sci­en­tists across dis­ci­plines rel­e­vant to com­plex trait analy­sis and human dis­eases. It will be rel­e­vant for clin­i­cians, research sci­en­tists, bioin­for­mati­cians and data users inter­ested in inte­grat­ing genomic results into the clin­i­cal setting.

    This event will be held at the Well­come Genome Cam­pus in Hinx­ton, Cam­bridge, United King­dom on 9 Sep­tem­ber, 2017; fol­low­ing the GCD con­fer­ence (68 Sep­tem­ber) and prior to the IGES meet­ing (911 Sep­tem­ber).
