About the Event
Making the Inaccessible, Accessible
Unlocking the Power of Genomics to Improve Human Health
It’s now possible to sequence a full human genome for $1,000 in a single day. During the days of the human genome project about a decade ago, it took a number of years and over $3 billion to sequence one person’s genomic information. Such dramatic technology breakthroughs in DNA sequencing are opening doors to new opportunities previously inaccessible to the general public.
In this talk, Amanda will explore new advances in the microbiome, non-invasive prenatal testing, carrier screening, liquid biopsy, and consumer genomics that are beginning to become accessible through genomics. She will also discuss different business models for creating breakthrough companies advancing novel applications in genomics to improve human health and beyond.
