There is a disconnect between scientists and the public when it comes to genomics. What is the public’s understanding of genomics and why is this important?
Dame Sally Davies insists that learning more about a patient’s genetic makeup will lead to a better and more cost-effective approach, that will ultimately spare resources in the system.
To help you plan your visit, or perhaps inspire you to sign up for your free place, we’ve put together a handy guide to this year’s theme, and some of our top picks from the agenda.
Paul focuses on the possibilities for big data in biomedicine, using computationally intensive approaches, including deep learning and graph databases.
“The Disconnect Between the ‘Promise’ and the ‘Actual Impact’ is the Biggest Challenge in -Omics Based Technologies” – Zisis Kozlakidis
We’ve sat down with Dr Zisis Kozlakidis before his talk ‘Tracking Viruses in Space and Time’ at the Festival of Genomics in London 2018, were we talk virus.
We bring genomics to the UK in our latest issue, as we look ahead to what this year’s Festival of Genomics London has to offer.
“My Greatest Achievement Has Been Overcoming My Own Shyness to Advocate My Disabled Child” – Judith Sheppard

Dr. Elhaik’s recent work includes the development of the GPS technology that identifies and dates the origin of genomes and promotes a new understanding of cot death and mental disorders. This is what a typical day looks like for him in his own words.
Colin’s lab processes about 350,000 samples a year in order to generate ~800,000 genotypes on very complex genetic models, we’ve talked to him ahead of the Festival.
We’ve caught up with Mike before his participation in the panel: ‘Can we fully integrate genomics into the NHS within 5 years?’ at the Festival of Genomics 2018.
