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
Medically Actionable Genomics
Informatics, Data Management & Data Integration
Abstracts are welcome for consideration as poster and platform presentations and should contain new and unpublished material. Status (talk/vs. poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.
