15th Anniversary of the Completion of the Human Genome Project:
Challenging Transition from 'OMICS' Discoveries to Responsible Application
THEME 1: A WIDE RANGE of '-OMICS' DISCIPLINES (transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, epigenomics, metagenomics, pharmacogenomics, vaccinomics, etc.)
15 years after the completion of the human genome project in 2003, this project has set the stage for rapid development of ‘-omics’ languages. Health care have been marked by the application of genomic knowledge to daily life and ‘-omics’ disciplines play an important role in disease processes. With the technological advancements made over recent years, there is a growing use of genomic tools for clinical decisions.
THEME 2: BIG DATA – ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE for 'OMICS'
Being relevant for research scientists, clinicians, bioinformaticians and data users interested in integrating genomic results into the clinical setting, this theme will focus on recent developments in analytical tools and resources that are facilitating big data integration, exploration, clinical advice utility and ethical issues raised by data sharing and usage for personalized medicine.
THEME 3: CURRENT AND FUTURE APPLICATIONS OF PERSONALIZED MEDICINE
This theme will showcase recent advances in genomics, genome editing, direct genome engineering (e.g. CRISPR) disease mechanisms, risk prediction and pharmacogenenetics for personalized drug therapy.
THEME 4: PUBLIC HEALTH GENOMICS
This theme will provide a forum of discussion of social issues and regulatory challenges surrounding personalized medicine application together with patient care.
