Welcome to our webinar "Personal genomes are personalized", which will be held on 19th September, 3 pm (CET +1) . The aim of this webinar is to exchange ideas and discuss cutting-edge research in the field of "Personal genomes", bringing together scientists from all around Europe and even beyond.

The speakers will be
Dr. Richard Michael Durbin, Head of Human Genetics at The Wellcome Trust Sanger InstituteDr. Yingrui Li, Deputy Director, BGI Research Institute

Advances in technology has reduced the cost of DNA sequencing down by orders of magnitude and brought the practice of personal genomes and personalized medicine into immediate future. Nevertheless, there is no consensus on the concept of personal genomes and what are the substantial scientific questions and applications. Here we first challenge the misleading re-sequencing approach on personal genomes by a full spectrum of genetic variations and their indications on functions. We then demonstrated that a complete picture by large-scale data acquirement and new analysis of personal genetic, epigenetic, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolic, and environmental information would dramatically help understanding complex diseases and cancer.
