      Yale School of Medicine Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry Professor, Dr. Mark Gerstein, published the paper ‘Storing and Analyzing a Genome on a Blockchain’, implementing an approach to use blockchain technology as a tool in genome analysis.

      Due to the technical challenges related to storing genomes in a blockchain infrastructure, many blockchain genomics companies use blockchains as a log-keeping infrastructure. In the study, Dr. Gerstein’s group presented “…the first open-source, proof-of-concept private blockchain network, which allows for efficient storage and retrieval of personal genetic variants.”

      Join the Yale Alumni Health Network (YAHN) for a discussion with Dr. Mark Gerstein and Sandra Ro, CEO of the Global Blockchain Business Council (GBBC) and YAHN HealthTech Chair, on the findings from Dr. Gerstein’s publication, and insights into how blockchain can be used to restore data ownership and integrity when it comes to genomics research and beyond.

He’ll be speaking about US-China Relations in light of the Ukraine War. The Russian aggression against Ukraine began at a time when global tension was already running high. What will the effects of the war be on relations between the United States and China, a relationship deemed by many to be key to future peace and stability? Will the Chinese leadership continue its de facto backing of Russia? And will Russia’s leaders accept a subservient relationship to China as a price they have to pay for the war? In this talk, Professor Westad will discuss these issues in light of lessons from history. Registration is not necessary, and there will be a reception with some Christmas cheer following his talk. Hope to see you there! If you are not in Munich and would like to join, an YouTube live link will be available. Watch this space. Online — Karolinenplatz 3 false
