The Human Genome Variation Society meeting "Genotypes & Intermediate Phenotypes" will be held Tuesday 15th of October 2019 as a satellite to the American Society of Human Genetics' Meeting in Houston.
Genotype-phenotype correlations have long been an area of interest in genetic research. A subset of this topic involves “Intermediate phenotypes” or “endophenotypes”, which are heritable biological traits within complex conditions that are measurable and relate to the mechanism of the full heritable condition. They have been a source of ongoing study in neuro-psychiatric illness, cystic fibrosis, obesity, and other diseases. Intermediate phenotypes have been used to aid gene discovery and in the interpretation of GWAS studies of complex phenotypes. This meeting will explore new data on Intermediate Phenotypes in these contexts.
We invite you to learn and participate by attending this event and invite you to submit your abstracts as soon as possible, closing date 5th September 2019.
