visiting McGill on 7/25

Topics in Neurogenomics & Genomic Privacy

My talk will focus on neurogenomics and how this has inspired my group
to become interested in privacy and security. I'll first talk about
work in the PsychENCODE consortium and how we have developed tools,
particularly clustering algorithms, related to this area. Then, I'll
talk about how important it is to keep large-scale cohort data,
particularly for mental illness, both private and secure. I'll
highlight some techniques that we have developed for security,
particularly in relation to putting a genome on a blockchain.
