Personal Genomes (Virtual Conference)

28 April, 2021 - 30 April, 2021

General Information

Over the past few years advances in sequencing technology, efforts to mainstream genomics in healthcare systems, increased sharing of genomic information, and direct-to-consumer genetic testing have brought us to the cusp of the long-promised ‘genomics revolution’.

The second Wellcome Genome Campus Personal Genomes conference will bring together geneticists, bioinformaticians, and clinicians from academic and the commercial sector interested in learning the extent to which current genetic testing technologies can help people learn about their personal health and heritage.

The meeting aims to democratise access to human genome technologies; facilitate and advocate best practice and governance of personal genomics data access; and promote openness and ethical sharing of personal genome data, while protecting privacy of the individuals.

Topics will include:

  • Promoting diverse reference genomes
  • Clinical implementation and interpretation
  • Infrastructure and innovation
  • Data sharing: trust and governance
  • Personal genomics and pandemics
