NEW - HGVS nomenclature Q&A session
We receive a lot of questions regarding HGVS nomenclature. Currently, these questions are all answered by private e-mail, with some examples published on the nomenclature Facebook page
In order for users to gain real practical experience carrying out nomenclature tasks, we are going to try something NEW:
bi-monthly online HGVS nomenclature Q&A sessions
The first meeting will take place on June 22, 8:00am GMT (check your own time zone here)
The meetings will be bi-monthly, on the 4th Tuesday of every 2nd month (even months). We will alternate the time of the meeting in order to allow people from either Asia+Australia, Europe+Africa or North+South America to follow the meeting during the day. We plan to record the meeting for those not able to join.
Meetings will take 60 minutes and have a standard format:
1) Short welcome (5 min)
2) Participants answer questions (35 min)
3) Questions from participants (15 min)
4) Close of meeting
For questions to be answered by participants we will use an online polling system (DirectPoll). Questions will be taken from those we receive daily and be a mix of simple and more complex cases. The idea is that you train yourself and learn HGVS nomenclature by applying the recommendations.
For those not able to participate, the questions will be available afterwards
using the Socrative platform (www.Socrative.com, classroom to be announced). For the 'questions from participants' session, everybody is encouraged to send questions to VarNomen@HGVS.org
so we can prepare. Of course, we will also allow you to ask questions 'live'.
For HUGO members, participation will be free. Details for non-members to join will be shared later. To register your interest, please contact email@example.com
