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 31st July 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.
