Highlights from The Festival of Genomics & Biodata 2022

The Festival of Genomics & Biodata is a highlight of the Front Line Genomics’ calendar and we are delighted to announce that this year’s Festival was yet another huge success!

Since the Festival of Genomics & Biodata ended, we have been inundated with requests for on-demand access to the Festival presentations. Therefore, over the next few weeks, we will be showcasing a selection of some of the most popular talks from this year’s Festival of Genomics & Biodata in video format for you to view at your leisure. Whether you missed the Festival first time around or if you just want to rewatch some of the talks again, there is something for everyone!

Four weeks ago, we started with a selection of presentations from five of our keynote speakers: Dame Sue Hill, Chris Wigley, Mark Effingham, Sir Patrick Vallance and Andrew Morris.

Three weeks ago, we continued with some audience favourites from four very well known speakers: Heidi Rehm, Stephanie Devaney, Marshall Summar and Eric Green.

Two weeks ago, we added a keynote panel discussion that covers a collaboration involving the University of Oxford and GSK.

Last week, we looked at cancer genomics and liquid biopsy with presentations from Paul Workman, Clare Turnbull, Peter Johnson, Charles Swanton and Klaus Pantel.

This week, we focus on Single Cell and RNA sequencing with presentations from:

  • Sarah Teichmann, Cellular Genetics Programme Head, Wellcome Sanger Institute
  • Sam Rodriques, Group Leader, Francis Crick Institute
  • Jose Afonso Guerra-Assuncao, Research Associate, UCL
