You can look forward to inspirational talks to spur excitement and discussions:
- Manuel Corpas, will talk about how he as a citizen scientist has crowdfunded and crowdsourced the analysis of his personal genome.
- Linda Briceno, will share her thoughts on legal and ethical implications of data sharing in genomics.
- Nick Sireau, will talk about how scientists and patients can engage in collaborations, and how Open Science may be either beneficial or challenging in this context.
- Tim Hubbard, will present how Genomics England is engaging the research community in the 100k genomes project.
- Julia Wilson, will present how the Global Alliance is working to implement standards for data sharing across genomics and health
