VarI-SIG: Identification and annotation of genetic variants in the context of structure, function, and disease.
GENERAL INFO:WHAT: A one-day special interest group meeting
WHEN: July 9th, 2016
WHERE: Swan and Dolphin Hotel, Orlando (FL), USA.
SIG AIMS:The primary goal of the VarI-SIG is to outline and discuss the recent advances in the methodology for the annotation and analysis of genetic variants. Building upon the experience of the previous VarI-SIG and SNP-SIG editions:
We are interested in submissions describing original work in all the fields of genetic variants research including, but not limited to "genetic variants in":
TOPICS OF INTEREST:
Databases, data mining algorithms and visualization tools for genetic variants analysis
Methods for predicting regulatory/structural/functional impacts of genetic variants
Personal Genomics, GWAS studies and SNV prioritization
Population genomics and phylogenetic analysis
