The paradigm of ‘one drug, one target’ is evolving to understanding complex biological systems that can help predict the adverse effects of a drug or the therapeutic effects of a drug.

This talk will discuss the use of computational biology tools to ensure high-quality genomics when used as part of the QC process. Additionally, computational tools can be applied to complex data sets to identify key clinical targets even in complex data sets.

Examples included will highlight the use of these computational tools to identify key clinical markers to guide decision making in clinical trials.
