The 16th CRG Symposium: Seventh International Workshop on Genomic Epidemiology will take place at the PRBB Auditorium from 20 to 22 September 2017 will gather speakers to discuss about the progress in sequencing and with other technologies for biomolecular analysis, and their applications in research and clinical settings.
Solutions will be presented for the accumulation, handling and interpretation of huge data sets, including the identification of rare and common genetic variants associated with disease, functional evaluation of genetic variation, understanding of gene networks and epigenomic phenomena in health and disease, pharmacogenomics, gene-gene and gene-environment interactions. Examples of the application of these technologies for epidemiological scale studies in different disease areas will be presented.
Participants in the meeting are welcomed to present their research results with a short abstract of 300 words. A limited number of slots will be available in the programme for selected participants for short talks.
