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.
