The GeneMappers Conference i (link is external)s a gathering of researchers with interests and expertise in laboratory genetics and molecular biology as well as bioinformatics and statistics.
The program is designed to appeal to a breadth of human and animal geneticists (aka “genemappers”) with a range of experience and at various stages of their profession. Delegates at all stages of their research careers are welcome - from Higher Researcher Degree/ graduate students right through to laboratory heads.
Themes for abstract submissions and invited talks featuring international and national speakers include:
- Analysis of rare variants, Mendelian traits and families
- Biobank studies
- Genome Wide Association Studies
- Gene expression & functional genomics
- Population genetics
- Translation into clinical practice
The GeneMappers Conference runs every 18 months, travelling around Australia, and attracts a strong contingent of Australian and international delegates. The 2019 meeting will be a very special event, being the 20th anniversary of the very first meeting which was held in Thredbo, New South Wales in Feburary 1999. This year, the 2019 GeneMappers Conference is returning to New South Wales, at the beautiful and historic Q Station venue on the Sydney harbour foreshore in Manly.
