Automating and democratizing the future of genetic diagnosis

I will describe a number of works from our lab, focusing on Mendelian/monogenic disease diagnosis. The works combine elements from medical genetics, genomics, machine learning, natural language processing, cryptography and more. Taken together, these works start to paint a compelling picture for the future of genetic diagnosis. The talk will be aimed at both practicing clinicians and informaticists.

Reception to follow.
