Learning from health data in the million genome era

November 1, 2019 @ 11:26 am

On November 12019 the CMSA will be hosting a conference organized by Seven Bridges Genomics. The workshop will be held in room G10 of the CMSA, located at 20 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA. For a list of lodging options convenient to the Center, please visit our recommended lodgings page.

Projects currently underway around the world are collecting detailed health and genomic data from millions of volunteers. In parallel, numerous healthcare systems have announced commitments to integrate genomic data into the standard of care for select patients. These data have the potential to reveal transformative insights into health and disease. However, to realize this promise, novel approaches are required across the full life cycle of data analysis. This symposium will include discussion of advanced statistical and algorithmic approaches to draw insights from petabyte scale genomic and health data; success stories to date; and a view towards the future of clinical integration of genomics in the learning health system.
