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.

Informatics Driven Clinical Genomics: Q&A With Mahdi Sarmady, PhD

Scientists are driving new discoveries about the role of genetic variation in specific human disorders at an exciting and unprecedented pace, and physicians are increasingly incorporating genetic tests into pediatric clinics as a diagnostic tool. But with high-throughput sequencing methods continuously yielding floods of new information, how can clinicians keep up with updated data for patients who have already received genetic test results?
