Using gene editing to fight deadly genetic diseases

Cutting-edge gene editing techniques hold enormous promise for tackling devastating diseases such as sickle cell disease, Huntington’s disease, and heart disease, according to experts who spoke at Harvard Chan School's annual PQG conference.

Using quantitative genomics to track and understand COVID-19

Tracking variants of SARS-CoV-2, understanding which mutations make the virus more dangerous, and figuring out where the virus originally came from were some of the topics highlighted at the 15th annual Program in Quantitative Genomics conference.
