The Clinical Utility of Whole Genome Sequencing
Rong Chen, Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA
With over 30,000 human genomes estimated to be sequenced this year, now is the time to apply the whole genome sequencing technology into clinics. The utility of these genomes in a clinical setting remains controversial. Dr. Chen will present on his work on the first medical analysis of a patient presenting with a whole genome sequence, recently featured last year in the Lancet1, and will discuss how whole genome sequencing could revolutionize research and clinical care.
