The Present And Future Of Whole Genome Sequencing
Whole genome sequencing is transforming research, and is poised to revolutionize routine health care, as it moves into the clinic and becomes part of a new foundation for prevention. Dr. Estep will present key obstacles and solutions to this important transition.

Session Abstract – PMWC 2019 Silicon Valley

The PMWC 2019 Genomic Profiling Showcase will take place on January 21, this showcase will provide a 15 min speaking opportunity for selected companies working with the latest technologies in nucleic acid sequencing such as NGS, providing instrumentation for genomic sequencing, and offering direct to consumer services. These companies will share their innovative products and services to an audience of leading investors, potential clients and partners. The Genomic Profiling showcase will exhibit the latest innovations in methods and instruments used for DNA/ RNA sequencing to ascertain the genomic and transcriptional profile of a person in order to understand why some people get certain diseases while others do not, or why people react in different ways to the same drug. This information is also being used to develop new ways to diagnose, treat, and prevent diseases, such as cancer.
