Front Line Genomics invites you to their event

Multi-Omics ONLINE. Webinar 1: Multi-Omics in drug discovery

About this event

With improving sequencing technologies, it is becoming easier to obtain more molecular information than ever, arming researchers with the most in-depth molecular information in the search for causative perturbations. As such, we are seeing an increase in multi-omics analysis, the study of more than one molecular layer in tandem.

However, studying these diverse data sets presents a significant challenge, requiring careful study design and thoughtful analysis for successful data integration, analysis, and interpretation.

Join us for this 3-part series which highlights the current efforts of global researchers who are using this type of analysis to develop our understanding of complex diseases and gain insights into therapeutic opportunities.

By registering for the first webinar in the series, you will automatically be registered for the subsequent webinars.

Webinar 1: Multi-Omics in drug discovery

1st July 2021, 3pm BST/ 4pm CEST/ 10am EDT

This webinar will present how researchers are integrating diverse omics datasets to find and prioritise drug targets in the hunt for precision therapeutics.

Data-driven disease target prioritization based on data integration into knowledge graphs – Mickael Guedj, Head of Computational Medicine, Servier

Multi-Omics characterization of the microglial response to amyloid plaques in chimeric mice – Alex Tamburino, Associate Principal Scientist, Merck and Rebecca Mathew, Associate Principal Scientist, Merck

Single-cell multiomics provide an unbiased, scalable approach to target identification and drug discovery - Stephen Hague, Senior Science and Technology Advisor, 10x Genomics

Webinar 2: Discoveries using single-cell multi-omics

8th July 2021, 3pm BST/ 4pm CEST/ 10am EDT

Advances in single-cell technologies have allowed for the unparalleled opportunity to profile DNA, mRNA and proteins at single-cell resolution, enabling cell-type-specific gene regulation to be examined. This webinar will focus on highlighting the enabling technologies fuelling this type of research, and key studies from researchers who are gaining insights using these.

Multi-omics goes from single cells to spatial – Rong Fang, Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Yale

Multi-omics integration: towards a comprehensive view of cancer – Laura Cantini, Researcher, École normale supérieure

Multimodal Solutions for Single Cell Analysis - Hannes Arnold, Senior Science and Technology Advisor, 10x Genomics

Webinar 3: Data analysis, integration and stewardship

15th July 2021, 3pm BST/ 4pm CEST/ 10am EDT

We are in the era following an explosion of omics data but making integrated use of this data and translating them into useful findings remains the biggest bottleneck to multi-omics analysis.

This webinar will focus on data analysis and integration methods, and projects that are underway to support researchers.

Using networks to capture complex multi-omics associations – John Quackenbush, Professor, Computational Biology, Harvard School of Public Health

Leveraging multi-omics integration to improve the diagnostic power of mitochondrial diseases – Silvia Bottini, Director, Medical Data Laboratory, University of Côte d'Azur

Analyzing spatial and high-resolution single cell multiomic data - Laura DeMare, Product Manager, 10x Genomics
