Mini-symposium: Medical and Population Genetics and Genomics

This event is part of a series of workshops covering various research themes central for SciLifeLab. The topic of this workshop is Medical and Population Genetics and Genomics, and will take place at Folkhälsomyndigheten, Nobels Väg 18 in Solna (Close to SciLifeLab Solna). There will be ample time for discussion, as the aim is to stimulate collaborations.

The minisymposium will highlight a selection of current aspects on genetics and genomics. Presentations represent activities within SciLifeLab that cover various methodologies and model systems of importance for the topic.
