Novel Approaches to Data Analysis Lead to Discovery at SAGES

By Barbara Drosey

Recognizing the importance of providing context for the rapid advances in whole exome and genome sequencing, data collection, and biological information, Marcella Devoto, PhD, developed the Symposium on Advances in Genomics, Epidemiology, and Statistics (SAGES) with colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University, Johns Hopkins University, Columbia University, and the National Human Genome Research Institute to create a space for colleagues to address these analytical challenges.

“One of its major strengths is the span of research in the areas of genomics that SAGES covers, from statistical methods to clinical applications,” said Dr. Devoto, a researcher in the division of Human Genetics at CHOP and professor of Pediatric, Genetics, and Epidemiology at Penn.

Bring on the Noise: Genomics Experts Think Through Big Data at SAGES

The Symposium on Advances in Genomics, Epidemiology and Statistics (SAGES) has a winning formula for success: Bring together an interdisciplinary group of scientists who are all working toward the same goal of understanding the genetic basis of human disorders. Close to 200 SAGES attendees gathered June 1 at the Smilow Center for Translational Research for a dynamic opportunity to explore a wealth of ideas and make connections with colleagues from diverse areas of expertise.
