Making a difference across the globe
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Dervila Glynn.
Come and find out how Professor Shankar Balasubramanian from the University of Cambridge (Chemistry Department_ founded an international company that is making a difference to the lives of people all over the World.
Professor Balasubramanian co-invented Solexa Sequencing, a super-fast way to decode and characterise DNA . Using a microchip system, Solexa Sequencing (now part of Illumina sequencing) can decode billions of DNA fragments at the same time. This has transformed bioscience by speeding up the reading of a human genome by around a million times.
Thanks to Solexa Sequencing, personalised medicine is a step closer; it will soon be possible to make clinical decisions based on the actual genetic information of the patient or infectious agent.
Join Professor Balasubramanian for a discussion on how Solexa Sequencing is now being used worldwide and how it is making a difference across the globe.
