Recently, several unique partnerships for population sequencing studies have been launched. Various medical organizations and pharmaceutical and direct-to-consumer testing companies are included in these partnerships. The designed studies are expected to create new insights, identify new disease targets, and improve individualized patient care. In this session we will hear updates about several of these collaborative population studies to learn about the various opportunities created, the resulting benefits for each of the partners, and the challenges that need to be overcome in relation to data flow and data sharing.
