Completing the sequence of human and other genomes will soon elucidate the precise location and base sequence of every gene in a reference genome. This reference allows for rapid characterization of polymorphisms across populations. It also enables molecular fingerprinting technologies to permit identification of the precursors and consequences of normal and pathological changes in gene expression. The challenge facing current biological research is effective matching of the tool to the target. Learn from seasoned and savvy researchers who share their experience and of challenges piecing together the biological puzzle of health and disease at Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 4th Annual Genomic Tools: Targeting the Missing Links between Health and Disease.
