Generation, Analysis and Use of Genomic Data: Status, Challenges, Future


Genomics is a study of entire genome of an organism, driven by modern technological advances and promising to bring about tangible benefits in several areas, most notably healthcare. General workflow of the genomics data generation, computational analysis and use will be presented, along with applications from the author's domain of expertise: development of genomic diagnostic tests for cancer. We'll also point out possible trends for genomics in life science research and medicine.
