Workshop on Processing of Genomic Information: From Standards to Deployment

Date: 
Wednesday, 19 July 2017 - 2:00pm to 7:00pm
Venue: 
Academy of Sciences
Via Accademia delle Scienze, 6
10123 Torino TO
Italy

13:30 - 19:00, 19th July 2017 – Sala dei Mappamondi, Accademia delle Scienze, Torino (Italy)

Organized by the Italian Institute for Genomic Medicine, International Organisation for Standardisation Technical Committee 276 "Biotechnology" and MPEG

A workshop on applications of genomic information processing will be held on 19th July 2017 in Torino, Italy, co-located with the 119th MPEG meeting.

The workshop intends to explore the opportunities for improved health services offered by the availability in late 2018 of an ISO standard on compression of genomic information and its impact on the relevant industry.

Specifically the workshop will address:

  • the potential of genomic information usage in public health
  • the IT challenges for the widespread usage of genomic data in public health
  • public policy on big data economy and genomics
  • a status report on the development of the ISO genomic compression standard
  • how the investors community can help progress the standard to deployment
  • how the appropriate usage of genomic data drives efficient drug development
  • how the genomic data processing industries can benefit from the standard
  • how health services can be affected by the massive application of genome processing

The workshop is open to the public interested in contributing to the massive use of genomics for better public health.

Registration is free of charge.
