Personal Genomes & Medical Genomics

We are pleased to host a new meeting on Personal Genomes & Medical Genomics which combines pervious CSHL meetings on personal genomes and on pharmacogenomics. The meeting will begin on Wednesday November 14 at 7.30pm and conclude with lunch on Saturday November 17.

As genome sequencing becomes routine, the availability of individualized genetic/genomic information is changing and challenging the practice of medicine. Stratification of common diseases based on the individual's genetics is increasingly possible, as is the best choice of pharmacological agent to be deployed to combat that disease. At the same time, personal genome sequencing generates large amounts of data that will need to be integrated into medical decision making. This conference will explore the current state of individual genomics at the level of the underlying genome biology and its application in pharmacology and medicine. The conference will also showcase other areas (eg. ancestry) where the ready availability of personal genetic information represents a powerful new resource for analysis and understanding.

Topics:
Cancer Genomics & Pharmacogenomics
Medical Genomics: Diagnosis & Therapy
Mendelian Diseases
Complex Traits
Clinical Integration of Genetic Variations
New Future Technologies
