Track 9 - April 21 – 23, 2015

Clinical Genomics 

Tools for Investigation, Integration and Implementation

The ability to integrate and interrogate multiple -omic datasets is critical for understanding disease. This can only be accomplished through stringent data management, analysis, interpretation and quantification. Ultimately, placing verified analytical tools in the hands of biomedical experts and translating insights found from diverse datasets ensures that patients receive the correct diagnosis and treatment. Track 9 examines the shift from genomic discovery research into clinical implementation.
