Description

Gill Bejerano and Jon Bernstein

Efficient and Scalable Analysis of the Clinical Genome as a Foundation for Precision Medicine

Whole-genome sequencing has revolutionized the diagnosis of genetic disorders. Up to 1/3 or more of patients undergoing genomic evaluation have a cause for their symptoms identified. However, this means that the majority of patients remain without an explanation for their symptoms. In this talk, we will present our experiences with cutting edge genomic testing and additionally present an overview of our novel suite of computational diagnostic tools developed to provide hope to undiagnosed patients and their families.
