The Festival of Genomics & Biodata

25 – 26 January 2023 | In-Person Event

WELCOME BACK to the annual get-together for the entire genomics and biodata community, to discover, meet, learn and celebrate! This year’s Festival will bring you inspirational speakers, the latest research and clinical breakthroughs, cutting-edge technology and incredible networking opportunities.

The Festival is designed to help you return to work armed with dozens of new ideas and contacts, but also to keep you engaged, excited and proud of the difference your efforts make for patients.

Frontline Genomics can’t wait to welcome you back in-person, for what promises to be their largest in-person and most vibrant Festival yet. Explore this year’s agenda and speakers, find out what activities are taking place, and don’t forget to register early as tickets are limited.

Event Category:
With any Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) test ordered, a Record of Discussion (RoD) form will also need to be submitted. This document is to record the patient’s consent for genomic testing and their choice on taking part in research. Guidance on the patient choice conversation can be found here
This RoD form will be available for clinicians to download from this webpage. Once completed with the patient, it can be send to the lab with the corresponding test order form and sample.
Tests available to order will be listed in the National Genomic Test Directory. A test order form will soon be made available for clinicians on this webpage to download and complete. This form will include the address of the laboratory that the appropriate sample and completed form needs to be sent to.
Until the new Genomic Laboratory Service goes live, please continue to follow existing test order processes.
Later this year, the online test ordering tool for Whole Genome Sequencing will be integrated into the National Genomics Informatics System (NGIS) and clinicians will be able to search or filter to find a clinical indication, confirm eligibility criteria and start the test request process for their patient.
