Remarks / more information:

undefinedDid you ever wonder what happened to the exponential increase in genome sequencing data? It is out there around the world and a lot of it is consented for research use. This means that if you just know where to find the data, you can potentially analyse gigabytes of data to power your research.

In this talk Fiona will present community genome initiatives, the genome sharing projects across the world, how you can benefit from this wealth of data in your work, and how you can boost your academic career by sharing and collaboration. 

With a background in software development Fiona pursued her career in bioinformatics research at Radboud University Nijmegen. Now a scientist-turned-entrepreneur Fiona founded DNAdigest and its social enterprise spin-out Repositive Ltd. Both the charity and company focus on efficient and ethical sharing of genetics data for research to accelerate diagnostics and cures for genetic diseases.
