The Human Variome Project Forum

  July 07, 2008  
The Human Variome Project, Philadelphia, PA, USA
10th November 2008


Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
10th November 2008

This meeting is designed to run as a satellite to the American Society of Human Genetics’ (11- 15 Nov.) and the Human Genome Variation Society’s (11 Nov.) annual meetings.

The abstract submission deadline is September 12th, 2008 although you do not need to submit an abstract to participate in this meeting. Abstracts will be accepted on topics in the general field of: new databases, new informatics for databasing variation, pathogenicity of variation and other topics that are listed on the Website.

The meeting will provide a good opportunity for you to share your experiences and ideas with your colleagues and has been designed to maximize exposure of the field, with an emphasis on single gene disorder, (where the need is most on the clinical level) to the various systems available and planned to enhance cross collaboration and avoid unnecessary work and expense. The aim of the HVP is to generate a common system which can be applied to all genes in all countries to collect variations and their effects.

There will be a discounted registration fee for delegates choosing to also attend the Human Genome Variation Society meeting “Clinical Genetics & Human Genome Variation” on the 11th Nov http://www.hgvs.org/Philly08/.
