Bringing Big Data and Genomics to Unlock Cures for Rare Disease

by @ 2:48 pm. Filed under ALL, BioEngineering
 

Too many children die each year from difficult-to-treat cancers. The rarity of specific cancers, high cost of drug testing, and limited access to trials have impeded the development of cures. UCSCgenomicsToday, the plunging cost of genome sequencing, combined with new initiatives to pool genomics data, the application of big-data analytic methods and global collaboration between researchers and physicians promises a profound revolution in the treatment of childhood – and many other – cancers.

Get involved by attending the UC Santa Cruz Live in Silicon Valley inaugural event, Bringing Big Data and Genomics to Unlock Cures for Rare Disease on Tuesday, February 2 at the Stanford Faculty Club, 439 Lagunita Drive, Stanford, beginning at 6 pm.
