Watson and Crick’s 1953 landmark discovery that biological information was encoded in DNA has been fundamental to advances in biology and medicine. Sequencing techniques invented by Sanger in 1978, massive parallel sequencing developed by 454 Life Sciences in 2003, and novel next-gen sequencing technologies based on scalable semiconductor technology pioneered by Ion Torrent are now broadly employed and have led to the emerging field of personalized genomic medicine. From the personal genome of Dr. James Watson to the Neanderthal Genome demonstrating mixing with modern humans, join us as Dr. Jonathan Rothberg decodes the history of sequencing and looks forward to the multitude of ways sequencing will impact humanity and our environment.

A reception sponsored by 4Catalyzer will follow the presentation with the opportunity to meet with Dr. Rothberg and the 4Catalyzer team.

Dr. Jonathan Rothberg
Chairman of 4Catalyzer
Inventor of high-speed DNA sequencing, founder Butterfly Network, LAM Therapeutics, Hyperfine, Quantum-Si, Ion Torrent, RainDance, 454 Life Sciences, ClariFi, CuraGen
