The Genomics Core at MU and NextGen Precision Health
Presented by Wes Warren, PhD - Professor of Genomics
It is an understatement to say that “next-generation” sequencing (NGS) technology has revolutionized biomedical science and the trajectory of healthcare. Over the last ten years, sequencing has created a paradigm shift in biological examination of disease as the sequencing instrument has become the modern era digital microscope of investigation. This new digital microscope produces a high volume and speed of data acquisition and the need for sophisticated subsequent analysis not seen since the similar revolution of 3- and 4-D imaging some 30 years ago. At the same time, the costs of sequencing are decreasing dramatically. As a central campus/system resource, the MU DNA Core facility promises to substantially increase the development of system-wide research networks and thus will impact all levels of multi-disciplinary basic, biomedical and clinical research envisioned by UM system leaders. A summary of the MU Tier 1 sequencing initiative and more generally the power of sequencing to address all types of biological questions with varied starting points including the use of single cell technology will be discussed.
