5 - 7 June 2017

Santiago de Compostela, Spain

It is my pleasure to invite you to attend the 14th International Symposium on Variants in the Genome: detection, sequencing & interpretation (“Variant Detection 2017” [formerly "Mutation Detection"]), a biennial meeting of a series that this time will be held in the UNESCO World Heritage city of Santiago de Compostela, Spain; a historical city with a strong human genetics history.

The meeting aims to present the latest developments in the field, the best methodologies for scanning, sequencing, databasing, bio-informatic analysis, functional testing and classification of variants (mutations) in DNA, RNA and protein. The meeting will be presented in plenary format with notable invited speakers and speakers invited from submitted abstracts after peer review. The meeting will include Workshops on themes related to NGS pipelines and analysis, data collection and variation nomenclature.

It’s not too late to register! We still have a few places left at what promises to be an exciting meeting.

By attending this conference you will learn about new genomic technologies, be updated on the BRCA Challenge, interpret variants and phenotype ontologies, and find out the latest advances in forensic genetics and pharmacogenomics. This is known as a friendly meeting, you will meet and network with colleagues from around the world at the many social opportunities provided throughout the conference. Check out the program on our Website but don't leave it too late, the space is almost filled!
