*We are now CALLING for ABSTRACTS for the meeting. Please fill out the abstract form below and EMAIL to IrishHumGen2010@gmail.com by FRIDAY 11th JUNE. Abstract selection will be announced in July.
Please forward this information to all your colleagues with an interest in Human Genetics. The European Society of Human Genetics (ESHG) has provided a fellowship for the best postgraduate oral presentation at the previous two meetings for attendance at their annual meeting. It is likely that this will also be offered this year.
The membership/registration forms are also below. Please note that this year you have the option of joining the European Society for Human Genetics for an addition €35.
This meeting is related to the HUGO meeting in Montpellier. Here's some information from the organisers:
One of the greatest promises of science today is for the harnessing of living processes for human health, for bioenergy, for environmental remediation, and for food production.
One possibility is that the new bioeonomy will be fundamentally based on genomics, genomic reconstruction, and computational systems biology. This symposium will examine the advancement of such genomic technologies and related bioinformatics platform, related economic opportunities in the internet, reconstruction of new organisms and the unlimited opportunities for enterprises to support discovery, production and services in this arena such as biofuels and genetically engineered food products.
HUGO, OECD and MRC have joined force to analyse this problem and to develop an analytical paper on the topic. This symposium will launch this effort.
