Highlights from The Festival of Genomics & Biodata 2022 – Week 6

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 ended, we have been inundated with requests for on-demand access to the Festival presentations. Therefore, we have decided to showcase 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!

Five 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.

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

Three weeks ago, we added a keynote panel discussion covering a collaboration between the University of Oxford and GSK.

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

Last week, we focused on Single Cell and RNA sequencing with presentations from Sarah Teichmann, Sam Rodriques and Jose Afonso Guerra-Assuncao.

This week, we’re pleased to share a panel discussion on combining long and short read sequencing featuring:

  • Andrew Beggs, Professor, University of Birmingham
  • Mike Hubank, Director of Clinical Genomics, Royal Marsden Hospital & Professor of Translational Genomics, ICR 
  • Matt Loose, Professor of Developmental and Computational Biology, University of Nottingham
