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.
