Organized for the 10th edition of the SNP Course

The analysis of DNA variations, including Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs), is a standard research approach to understand causes of disease, in particular the so-called “complex” diseases such as diabetes, osteoporosis, cancer, Alzheimer disease, etc. The field is changing fast with large scale projects (Human genome, dbSNP, HapMap, 1000genomes, ENCODE) and novel technology being continuously introduced, including Next Generation Sequencing.

The aim of this Symposium is to continue on the broad introduction in SNP techniques and applications, as given in the course the days before and the earlier SNP courses.

The symposium is not only organized for PhD students and postdocs of the Erasmus Postgraduate School Molecular Medicine, Nihes, MGC and other research schools, but also for advanced scientists from Erasmus MC or other universities in- and outside the Netherlands. The total number of participants is limited to 75.
Attendance of this symposium is free for all participants.

This is an advanced Symposium on complex genetics. You should have followed the SNP course and have enough knowledge accordingly.
