The Genomics of Common Diseases

19 Sep 2012 - 22 Sep 2012 - Bolger Center, Potomac, MD, USA



Bookmark and Share


Over the past six years, our understanding of the genetic architecture of disease has been progressively redefined by genome-wide association studies characterizing common variation, the fine mapping of these associated regions, the emergence and growth of new sequencing technologies, and the assessment of rare variant association.

With the improvements in genome sequencing technologies, this past year has seen a rapid increase in the availability of exome and whole genome sequencing datasets. This conference will include presentations highlighting the latest in sequencing technologies with applications to characterize genetic variation and disease associations. The conference will also include presentations on using high-density custom genotyping chips, refining associations through fine mapping, moving from association to function and annotation of functional regions, analyzing sequencing datasets, and exploring the genetic architecture of common disease.

Nature Genetics in association with the Wellcome Trust is pleased to announce the sixth annual Genomics of Common Diseases meeting, which will address the following topics across a range of common diseases:

•    Exome and whole genome sequencing
•    Custom genotyping chips and fine mapping
•    Clinical and targeted sequencing
•    Regulatory and functional genomics
•    Cancer genomics
•    Clinical translation and pharmacogenetics
•    Statistical analyses of sequencing datasets
•    Population and evolutionary genetics
•    Infectious disease and host genetics
