Join Us for a Lunchtime Discussion at ASHG

At DNAnexus we always look forward to attending the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) annual meeting.  It’s the world’s largest genetics meeting and this year it’s held in the quintessential coastal seaport of Vancouver, BC.  This meeting always delivers by showcasing cutting edge science in the genetics and genomics industry. ashg

Stop by the DNAnexus booth (#100) to demo the latest platform features, hear about new research applications the DNAnexus Platform is supporting, and join our lunchtime discussion to learn how DNAnexus has created the global network for genomics – and what that means for you.

The lunchtime discussion, The Rise of the Genomics Network, will highlight the need for improved approaches to data integration, scalability, and global collaboration within the genomics industry. In clinical genomics, pipelines need to be reliable, assembled quickly, and integrate with existing processes. During this lunch hour, the DNAnexus Team will explore how customers use the DNAnexus Platform to construct and deploy end-to-end solutions for health data networks.  

David Shaywitz, MD, PhD, Chief Medical Officer and Andrew Carroll, PhD, Vice President of Science will discuss real world examples from:

  • Regeneron Genetics Center
  • Geisinger Health System
  • Rady Children’s Hospital,
  • ORIEN – Oncology Research Information Exchange Network
  • Natera
  • Ebola viral sequencing onsite, and more.

Lunchtime Talk Details:

  • Friday, October 21, 2016
  • 1:00pm – 2:30pm
  • Convention Centre Room 18, East Building
  • Lunch and refreshments will be provided for attendees
  • RSVP here
