Methods and Tools for Assessing the Impact of Genetic Variations

A scientific meeting of the Human Genome Variation Society

(satellite meeting to the American Society of Human Genetics' Annual Meeting.

Both researchers and clinicians are awash in full exome and genome sequences, with the myriad of variants they harbor. For some purposes, well-studied variants provide research insight and clinical resolutions. But more often, the variants’ roles are not conclusively known from previous studies, and therefore methods are necessary to help inform their phenotypic impact. The 2017 scientific meeting of the Human Genome Variation Society will present cutting-edge research and practical approaches involving methods for interpreting human genetic variants.

Earlybird Registration Ends 17th August 2017!

Abstracts - Close 16th August 2017

CLOSING DATE - 16th AUGUST 2017  (no extensions)

We invite abstracts to be submitted to the meeting within the theme of Tools to predict the effects of variants as both oral and poster presentations. We also welcome other abstracts with general "variation" themes. Abstracts within the theme will be given priority for oral presentations. Please follow instructions on the Abstract page.
