Recently, I wrote a short peice for a great local science news & media outlet, Science In The News (SITN), to explain how population-scale genetic sequencing is driving major advances in precision medicine.
The article is targeted primarily for the lay public (i.e. non-specialists), so it's mostly jargon-free. It gets even better for those among us who are more visually inclined learners: a fellow PhD student at HMS, Brad Wierbowski, put together some great graphical figures to explain the core concepts (thanks Brad!).
jorisveltmanMy conclusion after @TalkowskiLab wonderful educational talk: SV very important in disease but detection is still far from perfect. We need to solve this before moving to interpretation...long reads will be the solution but need improvement and wider application.. #ESHG2019
