Understanding the Function of Human Genome Variation
Scientific Organizers: Kerstin Lindblad-Toh and Xavier Estivill
May 31 – June 4, 2016
Uppsala Konsert & Kongress, Uppsala, Sweden
The goal of this meeting is to bring together experts that may address important questions such as the function of noncoding variation, the connection between selection and disease, the diverse action of variants in different physiological and pathological scenarios, who develop and apply novel tools to connect genotype and phenotype both in disease and in an evolutionary context. By combining the diverse knowledge of many aspects of genomic analysis, we hope to bring out critical discussion and novel approaches to understanding human genome variation of crucial importance for the individualized genome analysis that precision medicine proposes. We are now entering the age of precision medicine with the capacity to analyze the genome of every subject, evaluating the functional consequences of variability and its interaction with the environment at different time-points in life.
