Germline multiple-gene sequencing has rapidly become the standard method of clinical cancer risk assessment. In patients with breast cancer or ovarian cancer, pathogenic variants in BRCA1 and BRCA2 are most prevalent...
The Genome 10K Community of Scientists (G10KCOS), a consortium of leading scientists representing research centers, zoos, museums, and academic institutions from around the world, is focusing on the Vertebrate Genomes Project, which aims to generate near error-free reference genome assemblies of all 66,000 extant vertebrate species. Our 2018 G10K Annual Meeting will be dedicated to coordinating efforts for the VGP and other G10K projects. The 2018 G10K Annual Meeting will consist of plenary talks, working groups, and networking events. Full…Find out more »
Monday, Wednesday & Friday, 10:40 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. Learn basic principles of life as it exists on this planet and how they generalize -- Darwinian evolution, genomes -- scientific theories of life including mechanistic, thermodynamic, and information theoretic models. Explore the future of life from the Internet to machine learning and adaptation, artificial intelligence, genome editing and fully artificial life.

Elaine R Mardis, Ph.D.
Nationwide Foundation Endowed Chair in Genomic Medicine
Co-Executive Director, Institute for Genomic Medicine at Nationwide Children's Hospital
Professor of Pediatrics, The Ohio State University College of Medicine
Genomics-based discoveries have revealed the underpinnings of pediatric cancer over the past ten years of study. These findings stand in stark contrast to similar efforts in adult cancer genomics and have outlined a particular set of challenges to including genomics-based diagnoses in the clinical care of these rare diseases. Many efforts are now underway to address pediatric patients with relapsed or treatment refractory cancers using genomic technologies, advanced analytical approaches, and pathway level abstraction. My lecture will outline these challenges, identify our current approaches to address them, and share vignettes about our successes and failures, with a look to the future of this enterprise.
