Systems Genetics: From Genomes to Complex Traits, September 2019, Germany

This first EMBO|EMBL Symposium on systems genetics will focus on the central questions of when and how changes in genotype result in changes in phenotype. The meeting takes place from September 29 – October 02, 2019, in Heidelberg, Germany.

Next generation sequencing, genome editing, deep mutational scans, and single cell biology are opening up unprecedented opportunities to understand how genetic variation alters molecular mechanisms to cause phenotypic variation amongst individuals, including quantitative traits and human disease.

This meeting will bring together groups using experimental, statistical and mechanistic modelling approaches to address these questions at different scales and in diverse model systems, including for human disease.

Session Topics include among other:

  • Deep mutational scans
  • Genetic interactions and prediction
  • Genotype-phenotype landscapes
  • Quantitative traits
  • Reverse genetics and gene editing
  • Single cell genetics
  • Statistical methods

Registration deadline: August 19, 2019

Abstract submission deadline: July 08, 2019
