Conference: The Landscape of Genetic Variants in Asian Founder Populations
Join us in Kerala, "God's Own Country", for a unique, multidisciplinary conference on population genetics and its translation to practice.
Our current conference, second in a series on founder populations, is aimed at identifying the historical origins of various Asian populations, their biological uniqueness and its association with disease patterns.
The scientific program will include talks by leading international experts on population genetics, medical genetics including rare and complex diseases, cancer genetics, personalized medicine and the interaction of genetics and society. Genetic syndromes of specific populations, metabolic/molecular markers of disease risk, and responses to medical interventions in complex diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and malignant diseases will be discussed.
Delegates' rates start from: USD 300
