Marc is an advocate for the privacy, security, and sharing of genomic datasets, guiding the DNAstack team’s efforts to making genomic and clinical information globally accessible and useful. Through his leadership, DNAstack’s Beacon Network has become the world’s largest search engine for publicly sharing genomic mutations, facilitating millions of searches and resulting in disease-gene discoveries and clinical translation. Marc leads the Discovery Work Stream for the Global Alliance for Genomics & Health (GA4GH), chairing the development of the Beacon genomic data standard for search. He also co-founded the Canadian Genomics Cloud and is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Toronto. Marc received his PhD in Computer Science from the University of Toronto, where he invented novel software algorithms and applications for the detection of genetic mutations, particularly structural and copy number variations. He developed a number of end-user genomics applications, including one of the first and most widely used genome browsers for next-generation sequencing data.
