CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
"Pharmacogenetics & Human Genome Variation"
(a satellite event to HUGO's HGM 2007)
The HGVS organises two one day meetings per year as a forum for scientists to exchange ideas and form collaborations. The meetings are designed to update and increase knowledge of human genome variation and generally attract a stimulating and interesting collection of abstracts in all fields of human genome variation making it an ideal forum to share information and results. Topics include: bioinformatics, mutation databases, genetic diversity, ethical issues, legal issues, methodology, complex traits, nomenclature issues and other topics. We invite all those interested in human genome variation especially bioinformatics and disease causing mutations to submit abstracts.
HGVS will be joining the Human Genome Organisation (HUGO) in Montreal, Canada as a satellite meeting. We hope all members are able to attend, non-members are welcome.
Of the pharmacogenetics abstracts chosen for presentation, a maximum of 4-6 will be chosen to write a paper and following review & acceptance published in a special upcoming "Focus" section of the journal Human Mutation.
The deadline for abstract submission is February 28, 2007.
We are seeking a sponsored lecture. All interested companies please contact R. Horaitis.
Previous meeting reports are available here.
