TCGC: The Clinical Genome Conference

Appistry Speaking

The free falling cost of whole genome sequencing raises the possibility – some say the inevitability – of applying this revolutionary technology in the clinic. More and more medical geneticists are proposing the idea of a "sequence once, read often" approach to preventive medicine. However, huge challenges spanning the scientific, regulatory, ethical and financial arena's stand in the way of clinical genome sequencing becoming part of mainstream medicine.

TCGC: The Clinical Genome Conference, invites stakeholders from all arenas impacting clinical genomics to share new findings and solutions in advancing the application of clinical genome sequencing.
