DNA dialogue – Prof Stephen Robertson and A/Prof Phil Wilcox, Genomics Aotearoa
Join Australian Genomics’ new breakfast seminar series, DNA dialogue.

This month's seminar "The Aotearoa Variome Project: Principles and Practice" features Professor Stephen Robertson and Associate Professor Phil Wilcox from Genomics Aotearoa (NZ).

Māori genomes are virtually absent from databases used by clinicians and researchers worldwide. The need to build a catalogue of genomic variation to underpin genomic medicine for Māori is self-evident but its governance, control and the uses to which it will be put to are all issues that Māori have voiced an insistence that have a central voice. Professor Robertson and Associate Professor Wilcox will outline how this project was conceived, designed and executed and offer perspectives on how it could serve Māori throughout Australasia and the Pacific.

With the wealth of genomic expertise internationally, we hope this seminar series will be a forum for members of the genomics community in Australia and beyond to learn of new developments in health genomics and the overseas experience.  

DNA dialogue seminars will be held live via zoom on the last Thursday of each month at 8am (AEST). Registration is open to anyone working in, or impacted by, medical genomics.

Jul 28, 2022 08:00 AM in Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney
