Variant Interpretation in Practice
Building upon the more technology-orientated biennial Mutation Detection meetings initiated by Prof. Richard Cotton in 1991, the symposium organised by The Human Variome Project will be held in picturesque Piran, on the Adriatic coast of Slovenia from 25 - 27 May 2020. Much has changed; in the earlier years the symposium reported on the application and evolution of existing DNA technologies, as well as the development of new DNA technologies for the detection, analysis and documentation of genetic variation. The NGS revolution has shifted our focus from technologies for detecting variants in DNA to the evaluation of the possible consequences of sequence variants. Consequently, we shifted the focus of the symposium to “detection, genome sequencing and interpretation”. The symposium will be presented in plenary format with invited keynote speakers and selected abstracts.
We take pleasure in inviting you to attend and participate by submitting your abstracts as soon as possible, and encourage you and your colleagues to attend, learn and participate at this dynamic meeting.
