Conference Description:
A genetic revolution is underway. The race is on to sequence hundreds of thousands of genomes around the world, to help us more fully understand how our DNA makes us who we are. Meanwhile, gene therapies are finally making it into the clinic, and CRISPR gene editing promises to give us unprecedented control over our own genetic code. We can now analyse genomes to get clues on everything from a person’s mental health risk to their likely sexual orientation. But to what extent are we defined by our genomes, and how should we use DNA sequence data to shape our lives?

Topics covered will include:
• Introduction to genetics and genomics
• Nature vs nurture
• The genetic revolution
• Genetic factors in disease
• How genetics shapes medical treatment
• Gene therapies and gene editing
• Designer babies and designer bodies
• What sequencing your genome can really tell you
• And more

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
