Understanding your DNA: The Past, Present and Future of Human Genetic Research

Dr. Michael Edwards CEO, Bioinfo Solutions LLC, a data analytics company

7:00 p.m.

Information contained in the ~6 billion bits of code stored in our DNA can be used to trace ancestry across the planet, to convict someone of murder, or to predict the potential for a terminal disease in later life. The cost of determining this genetic code for the average person has previously been prohibitive, but recent scientific advances have now made it feasible for many U.S. citizens to know their genetic makeup.

Dr. Edwards is the founder of the bioinformatics consulting company, Bioinfo Solutions LLC. He is active in teaching science and math at all levels, from instructing high school students in ‘big data’ analysis to holding workshops for clinical oncologists interested in using genomics in their cancer research. This lecture will attempt to summarize the current state of genetic research and to explain how all this information will completely change the way we do science and medicine in the future.
