Forging a connection between research and clinical applications.

PERSONAL GENOMES

PERSONAL GENOMES

September 14-17, 2009
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

This second meeting builds on last year’s presentations showing a significant milestone in human genetics – the first production of “personal genomes.” Ultra high throughput sequencing strategies have now been used to study more individual genomes – and yet few scientists, and even fewer clinical geneticists, are familiar with the implications of this new data. This meeting will address the issues of individual genomes being part of research and routine clinical medicine within the next few years.

Genotyping Tools

Genotyping Tools

June 8-9, 2009
The Fairmont Hotel
San Francisco, CA

The genetic scientific community is exploding with new robust tools which explore the connections between genotypes and phenotypes. The falling prices from developing to mature genotyping platforms, result in abundant data to interrogate and analyze. In addition, as more detailed clinical classification of patients is performed, stronger genetic associations of complex diseases are discovered. The new technical developments that enable the association of genes with disease, as well as practical examples of how these techniques are used is the emphasis of Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Second Annual Genotyping Tools: Sequencing to SNPs . . . Strategies to Success. Learn from savvy, seasoned researchers as they share their scientific strategies and success.
