Summer School Medical Genetics 2016 - From Next-Generation Sequencing to Translational Medicine in Neurological Disease Research
Date: 25-27 July, 2016
Venue: Tuebingen, Germany
Next-generation sequencing technology is profoundly changing the way of medical genetics research. Mining the generated rich and complex data to benefit patient health requires cross-disciplinary research efforts at the nexus of medicine, biology, and informatics.
With this Summer School, we focus precisely this multi-disciplinary interface, point out synergistic potential, and cover the entire process from clinical phenotyping, to NGS data analysis, to clinical and genetic follow-ups, to functional validations in model systems, and to finally guide development of therapies and (personalized) clinical applications. A particular focus will be on neurological disorders such as Parkinson's disease, dystonias, ataxias, and related brain disorders. Programm und Anmeldung hier...
