A scientific meeting of the Human Genome Variation Society
Satellite meeting to the American Society of Human Genetics' annual meeting.
Genotype-phenotype correlations have long been an area of interest in genetic research. A subset of this topic involves “Intermediate phenotypes” or “endophenotypes”, which are heritable biological traits within complex conditions that are measurable and relate to the mechanism of the full heritable condition. They have been a source of ongoing study in neuro-psychiatric illness, cystic fibrosis, obesity, and other diseases. Intermediate phenotypes have been used to aid gene discovery and in the interpretation of GWAS studies of complex phenotypes. This meeting will explore new data on Intermediate Phenotypes in these contexts.
Scientific Program Committee
- Steven E. Brenner
- Marc Greenblatt (Burlington, VT, USA)
Abstracts - Close 5th September 2019
We invite abstracts to be submitted to the meeting within the theme of "Gentypes and Intermediate Phenotypes" 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.
