Translational Bioinformatics and Genomics

Precision medicine continues to be a driving force for utilizing complex genomic data at the bedside, and analyses of these high-density data requires high-performance computing workflows. Advancements in DNA sequencing technology and computing capabilities have propelled the use of genetic and genomic data in precision medicine efforts. The Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (NCCBD) is actively developing new techniques in genomic sequencing that are enabling the diagnosis of rare diseases and improving our understanding of pediatric cancers. Dr. Crowgey will present on these translational research efforts and how bioinformatics is driving new technologies.
