A Satellite of ICHG 2011

This meeting is designed to run as a satellite to the International Congress of Human Genetics that this year will be held in conjunction with the American Society of Human Genetics' Annual Meeting (11th - 15th October 2011). 


The aim of the Human Variome Project is to generate a common system which can be applied to all genes in all countries to collect variations and their effects.


This meeting aims to build on the meeting held in Honolulu 2009 where a Neurogenetics consortium was formed and will provide an opportunity for you to share your experiences and ideas with your colleagues and has been designed to maximize exposure of the field, with an emphasis on neurological genes.The consortium is working towards implementing a global system to collect all information on neurological diseases. You should focus your  presentation on the areas of need and systems available and planned to enhance cross collaboration and avoid unnecessary work and expense.


High profile speakers have been chosen to provide you with up-to-date information. There will be ample time in the programme for open discussion. The meeting will provide a good opportunity for you to share your experiences and ideas with your colleagues and has been designed to maximize exposure of the field, with an emphasis on single gene disorder, (where the need is most on the clinical level) to the various systems available and planned to enhance cross collaboration and avoid unnecessary work and expense. The aim of the HVP is to generate a common system which can be applied to all genes in all countries to collect variations and their effects.


Information about the previous meeting may be found in the meeting report in the published paper: "Call for participation in the neurogenetics consortium within the Human Variome Project"; Neurogenetics DOI 10.1007/s10048-011-0287-4.
