From bases to bytes: How massive sequencing and machine learning are bringing new insights to disease
Puneet BatraDanielle Ciofani, and Stacey Gabriel

Genome sequencing technologies are getting faster while costing less, fueling a surge in the volume of data produced worldwide and sending engineers and data scientists scrambling to create the infrastructure that can store, share, and analyze it all at an unprecedented scale. Sequencing leader Stacey Gabriel, data strategist Danielle Ciofani, and machine learning scientist Puneet Batra will discuss the beginnings of this new era in biomedicine, one where sequencing and data sciences hold the potential to push our understanding of human disease in unforeseen directions.
