Genomics and bioinformatics for precision oncology. How cancer genomics data can be exploited through bioinformatics to obtain clinically useful information.

The topics of the conference will be:

  • Extracting therapeutic indications from sequence analysis of tumor DNA -
  • Bringing next-generation sequence analysis to clinical practice in oncology: the ACC experience -
  • Molecular stratification of cancer by gene expression analysis: achievements and perspectives -
  • Modelling cancer evolution -
  • Cancer immunogenomics: prediction of cancer neoantigens, immunophenotyping, single-cell analyses -
  • Impact of the microbiome on tumor onset, progression and response to treatment -
  • Network analysis & systems oncology -
  • Recognition of tumor-derived DNA in the blood by NGS data analysis -

 The workshop is free, but the registration is mandatory.
