Minisymposium: 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 SciLifeLab in Uppsala on October 26. There will be ample time for discussion, as the aim is to stimulate collaborations.

Presentations represent activities within SciLifeLab that cover various methodologies and model systems of importance for the topic.

The event is open for all researchers in the field. Welcome!
