Agenda At A Glance: 

NGS and the $1,000 Genome

Kevin DaviesKevin Davies, Ph.D., Editor-in-Chief, Bio-IT World

Biography: Kevin Davies, Ph.D., is the author of The $1,000 Genome. His previous book Cracking the Genome was translated into 15 languages. He is currently Editor-in-Chief of Bio-IT World, a trade magazine covering the role of technology in the life sciences. He was the founding editor of Nature Genetics, the world's leading genetics journal, which he headed for its first five years. He has also written for the Times (London), Boston Globe, New England Journal of Medicine, and New Scientist, among others. His first book, Breakthrough (co-authored with Michael White) told the story of the race for the BRCA1 breast cancer gene. Davies holds an M.A. in biochemistry from the University of Oxford and a Ph.D in molecular genetics from the University of London. He held postdoctoral fellowships at MIT and Harvard Medical School before moving into science publishing as an editor with Nature magazine.

A Guide to Today's NGS Platforms and a Peek into the Future

Shawn BakerShawn C. Baker, Ph.D., Knowledge Bank Curator, BlueSEQ

Biography: Shawn Baker is a marketing consultant with over 13 years experience in the field of genomics. Having received his Ph.D. at the University of California - Davis, he started his career as a Research Scientist at Illumina when it was a 15-person startup. After spending several years at the bench developing gene expression array products, he transitioned to Product Marketing where he led a team in charge of Illumina’s Expression and Regulation sequencing portfolio. Shawn is currently developing BlueSEQ’s Knowledge Bank, a neutral source of next generation sequencing information.

About the Conference: 

The X-Gen Congress and Expo explores the potential of both established and emerging genomic technologies. The genomics revolution continues to present the following challenges and opportunities, along with exciting new applications:

  • Extraordinary output of genomic data
  • Therapeutic interventions as well as diagnostic and prognostic tools for disease
  • Genetic diversity and genomic variation
  • Biological insights into the “active genome”
  • Linking mutations to human diseases
  • Understanding how host-microbes interactions impact health and disease
  • Data storage, transfer, and management
  • Efficient workflow strategies

Discover why technology and data are the driving forces that enable genomic discoveries as you design a program based on your unique research needs.
