Event details

A Question-time style debate The cost and time of sequencing the entire genetic code of an individual and has greatly decreased, such that it may soon be a routine test performed within the NHS. Genomics England http://www.genomicsengland.co.uk/ are currently undertaking a large project to sequence 100,000 genomes to begin to fully exploit the genetic code. During this event issues will be explored surrounding the use, re-use and storage of this information, rights and privacy in the light of the obvious and significant advantages and potential pitfall and problems. Doors open for the Question-time style debate from 7pm when you will be given time to compose questions for the panellists, with the debate to run from 7.40pm until 8.50pm.
