About EGM 2020
Genomic health information is increasingly informing routine clinical care, diagnosis, and treatment for a spectrum of inherited and acquired disorders.
The accessibility of next-generation sequencing has until now outpaced the ability to understand and interpret complex data for clinical use and patient care. Overcoming this “sequencing–interpretation gap” is key to mainstreaming genomics and integrating genetic and genomic health information into routine clinical care.
With increasing improvements in clinical decision support (CDS) technologies, together with major advances in artificial intelligence (AI), the diagnostic odyssey for many patients with rare and undiagnosed disorders is now being improved significantly, demonstrating the transformational effect of genomics in health settings worldwide (Turro et al, Nature, June 2020).
At Enabling Genomic Medicine 2020: Mainstreaming Genomics – we invited global experts and pioneers in the field to speak on how they are are making this vision a reality.
