Rapid advances in personal genome sequencing technologies have given unprecedented insights into the fundamental biological nature of our selves and our species: where we came from, how we are born, how we interact with our environment, how we get sick, and how we age. Our Exploring Personal Genomics workshop offers an interactive guide to understanding the many exciting applications of personal genomic information. We provide a basic background of genomics and information on how to obtain and understand digital representations of personal genomic data. Next, we discuss tools for exploring the personal genomics of ancestry and genealogy, interpretation of genetic disease associations, and the role of personal genomics in drug response. Additionally, we explore more advanced topics, such as interactions between a personal genome and the environment and connecting DNA to physiology. Participants are encouraged to follow along if they have personal genetic data.
Prerequisites:
- This workshop is more ideal for the scientifically-inclined, and individuals with personal genetic data (particularly 23andMe data), but all are welcome.
What to Bring:
- If you have personal 23andMe data, bring that and a laptop (with a modern browser, ideally Chrome).
