Curating the Clinical Genome (Virtual Conference)

A jigsaw puzzle representing the double helix
12 May, 2021 - 14 May, 2021

General Information

The conference will bring together the clinical genomics and biodata community to discuss best practices for the clinical use of genomic data, including interpretation and clinical utility, and the consensus generation of curated knowledge. This is latest in the series of meetings on this topic, which have been spearheaded by the ClinGen and DECIPHER consortia.

Topics for discussion will include:

  • Polygenic risk scores across populations
  • Approaches to estimating penetrance
  • Non-invasive pre-natal testing
  • Neonatal screening
  • Cancer and non-cancer molecular targeted therapies
  • Sharing data and associated clinical phenotypes in the genomic era

The programme will be of interest to a wide group of clinicians and clinical scientists practising genomic medicine, medical genomics researchers, companies that are developing solutions for clinical genomics and data scientists interested in genomic data sharing.
