Conference Description

The draft and finished human genome sequence have provided a reference source for all of modern biology. One might argue that international focused efforts to sequence the human genome created and catalyzed the entire field of genomics and democratized much of biology through comparative genomics. It has also enabled the study of humans as a model organism in which to inform biology and led to further and more rapid advances in human genetics. Studies in Human Genetics and Genomics have tremendous implication for modern molecular medicine as disease often represents the phenotypic consequences of genetic susceptibilities and/or mutations. The Human Genetics and Genomics Gordon Conference crystallizes the latest developments in this broad and rapidly changing field. The conference should be of interest to researchers and students in the fields of human and medical genetics as well as those interested in genome biology in the postgenomic era. It also provides a venue for rapid exposure to the "state of the art" for those contemplating studies, or the utilization of tools, in this field.

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.

Related Conference

This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "Human Genetics & Genomics" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here.

What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
