    Biography
      Marcel Dinger is the Founding CEO of Genome.One, Head of the Kinghorn Centre for Clinical Genomics (KCCG) at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and conjoint Associate Professor at UNSW Australia. Genome.One is a world-class clinical genomics service and develops specialist software and analytics solutions to enable precision healthcare worldwide. Genome.One was one of the first companies in the world to implement the HiSeq X Ten genome sequencing platform, which has capacity to sequence 18,000 human genomes per year, and provide a disease diagnostics service based on whole genome sequencing. He has worked in bioinformatics and genomics since 1998 in both commercial and academic capacities. He was awarded his PhD in 2003 from the University of Waikato in New Zealand, has published >90 papers attracting more than 10,000 citations, and is recipient of several highly competitive awards and fellowships. He is also a founder of two other successful start-up companies. In 2016, Marcel was admitted as a Fellow into the Faculty of Sciences of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australiasia and is a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

    Abstract

    Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are increasingly recognized as having key regulatory roles in development and disease. However, these regulatory molecules often have short half lives and are expressed only in specific tissues or cell types, resulting in the poor representation of lncRNAs in transcriptomic datasets. Using novel detection and sampling approaches, we reveal a high-resolution spatiotemportal view of the long noncoding transcriptome that provides fresh insights into their roles in development and disease. Learning Objectives: 1. Provide an example of how a technology advancement has led to a key change in our understanding of the functions of the genome. 2. Explain the effect of increased cellular diversity on transcriptome coverage attained by RNA sequencing. 3. Describe the different ways that regulatory information can be stored in noncoding regions of the genome.
