Hacking Health: Dr Sean Mooney on how computer geeks are fixing our biology
Tuesday, October 1, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
Most biologists are now underqualified to interpret massive genetic data, so we need to bring in the tech community to save our lives. Dr. Sean Mooney, the director of the Bioinformatics Department at the Buck Institute on Aging, will describe how people with computer skills are making the next wave of discoveries relating to our biology, and in particular, how we can learn to prevent age-related diseases by mining the data in our genomes. Soon, that data will multiply by orders of magnitude, as DNA sequencing goes clinical.
He's a great speaker, check out a previous talk here: https://vimeo.com/51582511
