"The $1000 Genome Revolution"
Co-Sponsored by the NY Biotechnology Association
· Is the genome project finally having an impact on all of us?
· Is new, fast, and cheap technology enabling personalized medicine, and breakthroughs in food and industrial applications?
· What does the future of this life science revolution hold?
The human genome project was an international, publically funded science research project to decipher the sequence, map the location and identify the function of human genes on all chromosomes.The project started in 1990, mapped the genome of a few humans as well as several other species and cost over US $4Billion.
The project drove innovation in various chemical reagents, instruments, tools and data analytics resulting in breakthroughs in fast, low-cost sequencing that are starting to enable a variety of uses.
The 1000 dollar genome is generating a true Life Science revolution with extraordinary implications to health, life and beyond. Join us and gain unique insights on the disruptive opportunities of this revolutionary advance in life science and human health.
