Genomics Lite: Exploring Cancer Genetics in Focus

Exploring how data science can help to fight cancer


Thu 23rd Mar, 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm

About the session:

Our guest speakers for the session are Zoe Sheard, Relationship Officer and Leonie Hodges, Scientific Communications Officer from COSMIC (Catalogue of Somatic Mutations in Cancer) at the Wellcome Sanger Institute.

Since the discovery of the first genes known to have a causal role in cancer in the 1970’s, the volume of cancer genomic data available has continued to increase rapidly. A trusted catalogue making this data accessible to cancer researchers around the world became critical. This is where COSMIC comes in.

Join us as we take you through the journey of our datasets from the Cancer Gene Census to Actionability as we highlight the wide range of cancer genomic data available and its real world applications.
