The sequencing of the human genome 10 years ago brought us into a new era in life sciences. The genomic era brings with it tremendous insight into human health - "the radical ethic of immediate data deposit" - because the human genome data was shared and easily accessible to all. What promises does this new era hold? What steps must be taken to ensure that the ethic of sharing and remixing data is maintained? How do we increase the odds that the shared data we do have translates into products that save lives? What does privacy look like when an individual's DNA is the basis for a personalized health approach and for medical research? Join us as we tackle these timely and often controversial questions and more at the next CC Salon.
