It is with great regret that for the 1st time the Human Genome Variation Society is cancelling its annual meeting at ASHG.
Unfortunately three key invited speakers cancelled at the last minute and we were unable to find suitable replacements in a short time therefore we were left with no option other than to cancel.
If you have registered, you were sent an emailed letter on the 2nd Oct. and a reimursement of your registration fee has been made.
We look forward to welcoming you at our event at next year's ASHG!
A scientific meeting of the Human Genome Variation Society
satellite meeting to the American Society of Human Genetics' Annual Meeting.
Genetics and genomics research now includes approaches that integrate laboratory data with electronic medical record (EMR) systems for genomic discovery and implementing genomic medicine in the clinic. These avenues are being addressed through multiple initiatives around the world. This year's HGVS meeting will present speakers who represent several ongoing projects focused on leveraging the EMR to help interpret genetic variation, highlighting bench-to-bedside and bedside-to-bench approaches.
Abstracts - Close 5th September 2018
We invite abstracts to be submitted to the meeting within the theme of "Leveraging the Electronic Medical Record for Genomic Interpretation" as both oral and poster presentations. We also welcome other abstracts with general "variation" themes but these will most likely be poster presentation only. Abstracts within the theme will be given priority for oral presentations. Please follow instructions on the Abstract page.
