Accelerating Precision Medicine with Low-Cost Whole-Genome Sequencing: An Expert Panel Discussion




New technologies that promise to significantly reduce the cost of sequencing a human genome will have a dramatic impact on healthcare in the next decade. But what are the real benefits of this trend for patients, healthcare systems, and other stakeholders?

As it becomes financially and operationally feasible for everyone to have their genome sequenced, precision medicine will progress rapidly from a largely research-oriented discipline to the clinical setting. By combining whole-genome sequencing with sophisticated artificial intelligence interpretation solutions, applications like personalized treatments for cancer and rare disease, newborn sequencing, polygenic risk scores, pharmacogenomics promise to become the standard of care.

This expert roundtable, moderated by Robert Green of Harvard Medical School, will discuss the range of opportunities that widely accessible whole-genome sequencing presents for precision medicine, as well as the clinical, financial, and operational considerations that clinicians and healthcare systems will need to address in the short and long term. The discussion will be followed by a live Q&A with webinar attendees.

Duration: 1 hour 3 minutes. Originally recorded April 2023. Available on demand.
