The presenter will give a brief summary on research related to human genomes, from the announcement of the completion of the first human genome about a decade ago, to some current genomic projects where thousands of human genomes are decoded. The presenter will describe a newly published paper where statistical imputation could be used to infer genotypes, at a tiny fraction of the cost for whole genome sequencing. It will demonstrate how computation and statistics are driving biological science. Finally, the presenter will propose a research idea for the University of Cambridge students to lead a CamGenome project where each person could contriute his/her health data and genome sequence for advancing knowledge of science and our own health.
