Join us for a panel discussion with information on the latest research as well as some clinical applications. Now that it is financially feasible to sequence a person's genome, the use of this information to guide medical decisions is starting to make an impact. Our panel will provide an overview of how both scientists and clinicians are applying genomic information to improve the treatment and diagnosis of human disease.
