Genomics for Clinicians - Jaipur 2016

posted Jul 13, 2016, 9:08 PM by Vinod Scaria   [ updated Jul 20, 2016, 8:36 AM ]

Workshop on the concept and application of genomics in clinical medicine 
Genomic technologies have been progressing at break-neck speed in the recent years, with newer applications being developed almost every day. Many of these advances have undeniably 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.
