Genomics in Clinical Medicine | Kochi

posted Dec 31, 2018, 9:45 PM by Vinod Scaria   [ updated Dec 31, 2018, 9:51 PM ]


As you are aware, genomic technologies have witnessed rapid advancement over the past few years. This has enabled us to understand the biology of diseases better and implications molecular characterisation of diseases. Also, the recent developments in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies have helped reduce the cost of nucleotide sequencing significantly, ushering in a revolution
in clinical practice. 

High precision diagnosis and prognosis prediction require integrating a huge volume of molecular data-sets including genomic data. Hence Clinicians need to keep themselves up-to-date regarding these developments in order to ensure the best possible treatment outcomes. 

We are delighted to welcome you to “Genomics In Clinical Medicine”, a comprehensive workshop that will provide a conceptual understanding of the spectrum of applications pertaining to genomic medicine.


Date & Venue
January 20th, 2019 (Date Revised)
This one-day workshop will be held on Sunday, 20 January 2019, from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM, at the Knowledge Hub, Aster Medcity, Kochi.

Genomics in Clinical Medicine | Thiruvananthapuram

posted Nov 23, 2018, 8:28 PM by Vinod Scaria   [ updated Dec 14, 2018, 8:31 PM ]

Genomic technologies have been progressing rapidly in the recent years. Many of these advances have accelerated our understanding of human disease biology with implications in better molecular characterization of diseases. In recent years, advances in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies have enabled a significant reduction in the cost of nucleotide sequencing. These together have signalled a significant change in the way we practice medicine.


A large number of molecular data-sets including genomic data needs to be integrated in the clinic for precise diagnosis and to be able to predict prognosis for a patient. It has become necessary that clinicians keep abreast of these developments and be equipped to implement it in their clinical practice. The workshop attains significance in this backdrop and provides a conceptual understanding of the spectrum of applications encompassing genomic medicine.
