Hacking Health: Dr Sean Mooney on how computer geeks are fixing our biology

  • October 1, 2013 · 6:00 PM

Dr. Sean Mooney, the director of the Bioinformatics Department at the Buck Institute on Aging, describe how people with computer skills are making the next wave of discoveries relating to our biology, and in particular, how we can learn to prevent age-related diseases by mining the data in our genomes.
With the onslaught of genetic data, biologists are now underqualified to interpret it, and need to bring in the tech community to save our lives. Soon, that data will multiply by orders of magnitude, as DNA sequencing goes clinical.
