BITE SIZE SCIENCE: Accelerating genomic diagnosis of disease
Thursday 28 October 2021, 12:00pm-12:30pm (AEDT)
Genomic tests are increasingly used to diagnose genetic disease and give families answers about their health. These tests look at all of a person’s DNA, and all of their genes, at once. However, many diseases still can’t be diagnosed because they are caused by long, repeated sequences in the genetic code that are too hard to read with the available technology. Garvan researchers are developing new methods to read through these long stretches of DNA to accelerate the diagnosis of previously undiagnosed disease.
Join us for our upcoming seminar with Dr Ira Deveson and Dr Kishore Kumar to learn about these exciting new approaches to accelerate diagnosis and profoundly impact people’s lives.
