AGM followed by Genomic Medicine talk - how high throughput sequencing of the human genome is disrupting clinical research and diagnostics
Professor Sarah Ennis, University of Southampton, will briefly overview some fundamental human genetics, explaining the nature of human genetic variation. She will cover the following points:
- Discuss how this variation can be interpreted to better understand the genetic causes of human disease.
- Outline key aspects of the new high-throughput DNA sequencing technology that allow an entire human genome to be sequenced within a single day.
- Overview applications to medical research and integration into national health system.
- Identify ethical considerations and ongoing challenges in adopting this disruptive technology.
All are welcome to attend the AGM, but only members of the RSB may vote.
