Advances in genomics, bioinformatics and other technologies are ushering a new era of precision medicine and precision public health. Human genome sequencing is increasingly used in a variety of health systems in the United States and globally. Pathogen genomic sequencing is been rapidly integrated into clinical and public health research and practice. In this seminar, the speakers will explore how advances in human and pathogen genomics have impacted public health research, policy and programs. The speakers will review CDC activities in the field and discuss challenges and opportunities for the near future.
