Advances in Genomics and Technologies

Main Sponsor

This one day symposium will address the science, clinical use, progress, new technologies and a not so often discussed topic – the challenges in the data handling.

The genomic science and understanding have taken a giant leap in the last couple of decades. This is due to scientific breakthroughs and new inventions in technologies and applications. AGT 2019 present some of today’s new discoveries, initiatives, applications and technologies that are being used and developed in the northern part of Europe. In spite of the breakthroughs very little is known about the connections between genomics, transcriptomics, methylomics and the phenotype e.g. the etiology and pathology for humans.

AGT 2019 will feature presentations from leading genomic institutions in Sweden and Denmark focusing on whole human genome sequencing as a routine applications, along with topics addressing how to handle data that is generated from very large genomic and other biological data sets. The third section of talks will present new technologies and applications such as NGS long read technologies, spatial transcriptomics, and ctDNA/liquid biopsies.
