What will your doctor be able to tell you when your entire genome can be sequenced in an afternoon for $1,000 or less? Who out there in the business world has a handle on how to make this data useful? Will it actually help our society improve health and wellness?
I’m getting my game face on for a sold-out event we’re hosting this afternoon in Seattle called “Computing in the Age of the $1,000 Genome.” Registration for this half-day forum starts at around 1:15 pm, and the program will get going at 2 pm. As usual at Xconomy events, we’ll have networking before and after we hear from our all-star cast of speakers. The event will be at Swedish Medical Center’s Cherry Hill campus, Pinard Auditorium, 550 17th Avenue in Seattle.
Here’s a reminder of who’s coming to join the conversation. See you over there.
