About This Workshop

New technologies are transforming human genetics by making the full DNA sequence of individuals available at affordable prices. This workshop is to present current efforts towards computational precision medicine. Participants will also learn how to conduct these analyses. This workshop will be of useful to healthcare professionals, scientists and postgraduate students who are interested in computational precision medicine.

Topics Will Include

  • Algorithms and advanced informatics for genome analysis
  • Benchmarks, tools and applications in genomic and transcriptomic analyses
  • Genome mutation interpretation
  • Systems biology of signaling pathways: from data to mechanisms and targets
  • Personalizing therapies using DNA sequencing
