GENOMIC MEDICINE : A TRANSITION IN THE MAKING  

par Michel GEORGES (GIGA-Medical Gnomics, ULiège), membre associé.          

As cost of sequencing whole genomes continue to decline, opportunities to cost-effectively use this information for the benefit of the patience and/or health service providers are increasing.  I will survey the present applications of medical genomics in human health including preconceptual screening, preimplantation testing, non-invasive prenatal diagnosis, postnatal screening, polygenic risk scores and cancer sequencing.
