Illumina’s Highly Anticipated ‘Understand Your Genome’ Symposium Supported by GeneInsight Interpretation and Reporting Tool
Oct 25, 2012
The Illumina ‘Understand Your Genome’ event was hosted with much success on October 22nd and 23rd, 2012 at the Illumina headquarters in San Diego. As part of the registration fee, this unique event provided whole genome sequencing, performed in Illumina’s CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited lab, for attendees, reporting across a range of disease, conditions, and traits. Results included a list of variants and clinical interpretation of the data by Illumina geneticists. Illumina and Partners Healthcare collaborated to apply GeneInsight software to interpret and report on these conditions.
Each attendee who had his or her genome sequenced also received an iPad with the MyGenome app installed and their genome pre-loaded. The Company sent out invitations prior to the event, targeting individuals with a professional interest in whole-genome sequencing, including medical geneticists, pathologists, academics, and industry or business leaders.
The next Understand Your Genome event will be held on May 14-15, 2013 in San Diego. Our very own Heidi Rehm will return to speak along with an impressive line up of key opinion leaders, many returning from the inaugural event.
