January 3-7, 2019
Biological data acquisition technologies are advancing at an increasing pace. With decreasing cost of DNA sequencing technologies, the number and the size of the available genomic datasets have exponentially increased and become available to broader audiences. This session will explore the unique privacy and ethical challenges related to the storage, processing, and sharing of individuals’ biological data generated by multitude of technologies including but not limited to genomics, proteomics, metagenomics, bioimaging, biosensors, and personal health trackers. The mission is to bring together computational biologists, experimental biologists, computer scientists, ethicists, and policy and lawmakers to share ideas, discuss the challenges related to biological data and privacy and hopefully create collaborations.
Examples of topics within the scope of this session include but are not limited to:
