Description de l'événement
We are entering the age of personalized genomics. But what does it teach me about who I am?

À propos de cet événement

The first genome was sequenced over a decade ago – it took years of collaboration between scientists around the world and cost millions of research dollars. But today it takes hours to sequence a human genome and it costs around US$1,000. Which means that we are entering the age of personalized genomics. But what does it mean to know the sequence of my genome? What does it teach me about who I am?

Jonathan Weitzman was the founding Director of the Centre for Epigenetics and Cell Fate and he is a Professor of Genetics at the University of Paris, France. Jonathan is also director of the interdisciplinary Labex Who Am I? and the graduate school G.E.N.E.

This event is organized by Université de Paris as part of the USPC Festival of Ideas and the Voilah! 2019 Festival in partnership with the FrenchLab Singapore.

A cocktail reception will follow the event.
