Genomic Medicine 2020 Nordic
November 3 - November 5
Genomic Medicine 2020 NordicWorkshop: 3rd November / Conference: 4th - 5th November
The seventh annual Genomic Medicine 2020 Nordic Conference will return to the South Denmark University (SDU) in Odense on 4th & 5th November and is organised – as in previous years – in partnership with Odense University Hospital and the Kennedy Centre at Rigshospitalet.
There will be a clinical NGS Data Analysis Workshop on 3rd November at the SDU. This will be led by the bioinformatics team at Odense University Hospital. The workshop is aimed at analysis of the data as well as the clinical interpretation of the variants.
The conference itself will focus on the use of Genomics & Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies and tools to look at human disease both in research as well as in a clinical setting. We will cover Next Generation Sequencing applications and workflows, Artificial Intelligence applied to genomics, personalized genomics, whole genome sequencing, exome sequencing, cancer and rare disease genomics as well as bioinformatics, data analysis and storage and many more emerging research applications as well as their translation into their clinic.
Some of the confirmed speakers are: Prof Brage Storstein Andresen (SDU), Prof Niels Tommerup (University of Copenhagen), Prof Kasper Thorsen (National Whole Genome Sequencing Center), Prof Anna Wedell (Karolinska), Prof Trine Mogensen (Aarhus University) and more… Please check the ‘Speakers & Agenda’ tab to view the current line up as we are still adding speakers as they confirm.

CLINICAL NGS DATA ANALYSIS WORKSHOP on 3rd November
Led by the Bioinformatics team of Odense University Hospital (OUH)
This workshop will be hands-on, so all delegates will need to bring their own laptop. Full laptop requirements are as follows:
– Java 7 or 8
– System requirement: at least 4GB RAM and 10 GB of free hard disc space.

HOW TO GET TO CONFERENCE VENUE AT SDU, ODENSE
Restaurant & Lecture Theatre
South Denmark University (SDU)
5230 Odense M
Rooms O97 & O99
South Denmark University (SDU)
5230 Odense M
The SDU campus is located around 5 km south of Odense city centre and is well connected by public transport (bus). A taxi ride will take around 15 minutes. You can find more information below.
The university campus is very large and the best way to reach the restaurant is through the main entrance (picture above). The Restaurant is located in Building 34.1, Level 2. You can view an interactive campus map HERE.
The best way to arrange your journey from your arrival airport to Odense is by using the Journey Planner at www.rejseplanen.dk.
Arriving at Copenhagen Airport:
When arriving in Copenhagen, the easiest way to get to Odense is by train. The train departures directly from the airport and arrives in Odense approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes later. The trains depart frequently. Everything you need, ticketing office and exit to the platforms, is available from the lobby in Terminal 3 at Copenhagen Airport.
Using the Journey Planner: Type: From “Copenhagen Airport” to “Odense st”.
Arriving at Billund Airport:
From Billund, there is no direct means of transportation to Odense. Therefore, the journey from Billund to Odense is by both bus and train. This journey takes approximately two hours.
Using the Journey Planner: Type: From “Billund Airport” To “Odense st”.
Arriving in Odense:
In all likelihood, the train station and adjacent bus station will be your hub of transportation. From here, city bus lines (40, 41 and 42) depart regularly. Their terminus is the main entrance of the university, which is on the Southern outskirts of Odense. The taxi hub is on the North of the station, the city buses stop at the ground floor of the station.
