Gordon Research SEMINAR on Quantitative Genetics & Genomics

  September 09, 2014  
Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco Resort, Lucca (Barga), Italy
February 21-22, 2015

Meeting Overview

The Gordon Research Seminar on Quantitative Genetics & Genomics is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The focus of this meeting is on computational and experimental methods to study the evolution of genomic variation, the functional roles of different types of variants, the genomic architecture of complex traits, and how this information can be used for genetic improvement of agricultural species and for human medicine. The meeting will provide the opportunity for young investigators in human, animal, plant and model organism genetics and genomics to interact with each other and with current leaders in these fields, discussing a wide range of topics such as how to integrate functional genomics data, apply next-generation sequencing technologies and identify gene-gene interactions.
