Abstract di Anthony Cox
My work at Solexa and then Illumina has meant I've been fortunate to observe at close hand the effect of a disruptive technology on an established field - that of DNA sequencing. I'll discuss how rapid changes in both sequencing technology and computing hardware have spurred innovation in bioinformatics and created new applications for concepts from computer science. While the field has matured in some ways, many challenges remain and I'll finish by speculating on future trends.
