“Ending Diagnostic Odysseys”: A Bio-IT World Podcast

Guest: ELIZABETH WORTHEY PhD, Assistant Professor, Medical College of Wisconsin  

Host: KEVIN DAVIES, Editor, Bio-IT World  

Elizabeth WortheyA team led by Liz Worthey and Howard Jacob recently published a landmark case report in which genome sequencing of an individual patient, Nicholas Volker, produced a specific diagnosis and a meaningful therapy. Since October 2010, their team at the Medical College of Wisconsin has established a comprehensive review system to end the diagnostic odysseys of other young patients. 

In this exclusive podcast, recorded at the Copenhagenomics conference in June 2011, Liz Worthey discusses with Bio-IT World editor Kevin Davies the highs and lows of the Volker case, the challenges of genome data analysis, and how that experience has provided the foundation for ongoing clinical genome sequencing efforts.
