This meeting is designed to run as a satellite to the American Society of Human Genetics' Annual Meeting (20 - 25 October 2009) and the Human Genome Variation Society's (20th October) meeting in the same venue.


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.


This meeting 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. It will explore the possibility of starting a consortium to work towards implementing a global system to collect all information on neurological diseases. You should focus you 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 and will be 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.
