Advancing Rare Disease Research with Multi-Omic Data Analysis
Join us for a webinar on rare disease research in honor of Rare Disease Day!

There are more than 300 million people around the world living with an identified rare disease, and for the majority of these patients, there is no cure. Finding a treatment can be like searching for a needle in a haystack, but recent advancements in technologies and bioinformatics methodologies have made it easier for researchers to take on the hefty challenges in rare disease.

This webinar will feature Guest Speaker, Salvatore La Rosa, from the Children's Tumor Foundation (CTF), who will present about the foundation’s mission to advance research and care for children with neurofibromatosis.

DNAnexus Scientist, Ben Busby will then take a deep dive into variant annotation to find and discern genetic variants in a Schwannomatosis dataset that are likely to be deleterious.

Webinar highlights:
-Guest speaker: Salvatore La Rosa, Children’s Tumor Foundation
-Patient findings from a Schwannomatosis dataset
-Identifying causal variants and find other associations
-Conducting RNAseq analysis
