Anniversary Seminars: Genetics in the post genome era

Since the human genome project was completed in 2003, we have witnessed a tremendous technological development.

DNA sequencing is today 100 million times more efficient than 10 years ago, and the price for sequencing a human genome has fallen to below 1000 USD. This has made it possible to perform experiments that we could only dream of a few years ago.

The main challenge

Today the main challenge is to make sense of the vast amount of data we gather from cells, tissues and patients. We use these data to improve our understanding of biology and pathophysiology and to make better clinical decisions for patients.
