Personal Genomes & Pharmacogenomics

  December 06, 2011  
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Cold Spring Harbor, NY
November 14 - 17, 2012

We are pleased to host a new meeting on Personal Genomes & Medical Genomics which combines pervious CSHL meetings on personal genomes and on pharmacogenomics. The meeting will begin on Wednesday November 14 at 7.30pm and conclude with lunch on Saturday November 17.

As genome sequencing becomes routine, the availability of individualized genetic/genomic information is changing and challenging the practice of medicine. Stratification of common diseases based on the individual's genetics is increasingly possible, as is the best choice of pharmacological agent to be deployed to combat that disease. At the same time, personal genome sequencing generates large amounts of data that will need to be integrated into medical decision making. This conference will explore the current state of individual genomics at the level of the underlying genome biology and its application in pharmacology and medicine. The conference will also showcase other areas (eg. ancestry) where the ready availability of personal genetic information represents a powerful new resource for analysis and understanding.

Basic Genomics – Mutations, Variation & Genome Structure
Whole-Genome Studies & Translational Bioinformatics
Animal Models
Personal Genomics
Medically Actionable Genomics
Cardiovascular Diseases
Metabolic Diseases
Rare Diseases
Pharmacogenetic Mechanisms
