DNA Sequencing for Precision Medicine

18 May 2021 18:30-20:00, United Kingdom

DNA sequencing technology has undergone a revolution to achieve over a million-fold improvement in efficiency of data generation.  There is now an opportunity for routine adoption of genome sequencing in research and healthcare. Genomes are decoded in a single rapid test that provides improved disease diagnosis to aid treatment. Early applications, include rare, undiagnosed genetic diseases and cancer, exemplified by the 100,000 Genomes project with Genomics England and the National Health Service.  The same approach will help widespread implementation of risk profiling, early detection and potentially prevention of cases of common disease in national populations, as healthcare evolves to embrace precision medicine. This technology is being used to sequence the SARS-Cov-2 (Covid19) virus and its variants

Online, United Kingdom

Organised by
RSC Marketing Interest Group
We arrange early evening talks with a general theme of "marketing chemistry", highlighting practical applications of chemicals and chemical services across the range of chemical disciplines, industry sectors and government activities. These talks are a great way of seeing what goes on in other parts of chemistry and what other chemists do for a living.  The events are a chance to share our passion for chemistry.  This is a general interest talk so the invitation has also been sent to local section members.  We also welcome 6th form and university students who want to find out more the business of chemistry.
