DNAdigest will be organising a workshop entitled  “Translational genomics – from bioinformatics to medical informatics” at the International Conference on Systems Biology 2013 in Copenhagen. The workshop will be held on Thursday August 29th at DTU, Lyngby.

In this workshop we will present the current challenges in translational genomics. We will discuss how research findings in genomics can be linked to and have an impact for medical diagnostics. Four presentations will cover the views from bioinformatics to medical genetics. There will be time set aside for Q&A with our presenters, and we will encourage you to participate in the discussion.

Søren Brunak, Professor, Center for Biological Sequence Analysis:
Data mining medical records for new insights for diagnostics

Jennifer Becq, Bioinformatics Scientist, illumina Cambridge:
From sequencing a tumour sample to finding actionable variants

Mette Nyegaard, Associate Professor Human Genetics, Aarhus University:
A novel deafness locus and gene mutation on chromosome 6q15-q21 identified using linkage analysis and next generation sequencing

Fiona Nielsen, DNAdigest.org:
Protecting data and sharing knowledge – Enabling secure data access for advancement of genomics research
