March 16, 2015: Bioinformatics innovations and personalized medicine (click to register)
Bioinformatics is the application of big data techniques to the Life Sciences. Unlike the type of data used in retail — such as Target or Capital One — bioinformatics data is highly self correlated and patients well being depends on correct analysis.
Join us to learn about the challenges and opportunities as bioinformatics becomes an integral part of academic and clinical research, and a component of personalized medicine.

Kylee Bergin is currently at the Broad Institute working on the Genomics Platform as part of the Sequencing team. The Genomics Platform is a leader in high throughput sequencing and Bergin works on the development of Illumina sequencers in the production lab. Most recently she worked to implement and optimize the HiSeqX Ten systems for the Broad. Prior to joining the Broad Institute, Bergin studied Bioinformatics at Boston University and has assorted computational experience from college and work prior to starting at BU. Bergin holds a B.S. in Biotechnology from Tufts University School of Engineering.
Richard J Resnick, MS, MBA has played a leadership role at GenomeQuest since 2008. He has extensive experience building and growing innovative technology companies in the life sciences and beyond. He was previously CEO of Harmony Line, Inc., an MIT Media Lab company, where he partnered with the famous composer/technologist Tod Machover to develop and commercialize Hyperscore, a unique software tool to enable anyone to compose music. Prior to Harmony Line, Resnick was the CEO of Mosaic Bioinformatics which he sold to NetGenics in 2000. Resnick was the global bioinformatics software head for Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, and got his start in genomics working on the Human Genome Project under Eric Lander at the MIT Whitehead Institute, authoring software applications like Primer3, still widely in use some 20 years later.
Resnick frequently gives talks to the public on the implications of cheap genome sequencing.
Resnick holds an M.B.A. from the MIT Sloan School of Manangement, an M.S. in Computer Science from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and a B.S in Computer Science from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
Nick Renzette PhD, operates at the interface of genomics, population genetics and clinical virology, working with a large group of international researchers funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)
and Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB) to generate predictive algorithms of viral evolution. He has been a pioneer in the application of next generation sequencing to the study of infectious disease and advancing evolutionary theory.
Renzette is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Massachusetts Medical School; he received his Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from the University of Massachusetts – Amherst, and his B.S. in Biochemistry from the University of Delaware.
