WHEN: July 14th, 2012
WHERE: ISMB 2012 venue in Long Beach (CA), USA.

SNP-SIG 2012 Meeting Programme and Abstracts

SIG AIMS:

The primary goal of the SNP-SIG is to outline and discuss the recent advances in the methodology for the annotation and analysis of genomic variation data.

Building upon the experience of the SNP-SIG 2011 in Vienna and other international workshops and meetings (e.g. AIMM2010, CAGI, HGVS 2010 and PSB2011) the SNP-SIG will serve to build a research network , facilitating the exchange of ideas and the establishment of new collaborations within the community. Thus, SNP-SIG will strive to meaningfully contribute to the management of the complexity of the analysis and evaluation of genetic variation.

We are interested in attracting submissions describing original work in all the fields of genomic variation research including, but not limited to "genomic variation in":

  • sequence analysis
  • protein structure and function
  • protein interactions and molecular networks
  • transcriptomics and gene regulation
  • disease models and epidemiology
  • population genomics and evolution
  • comparative genomics

  • TOPICS OF INTEREST:

    Databases, data mining algorithms and visualization tools for SNP analysis

    Methods for predicting regulatory/structural/functional impacts of SNPs

    Personal Genomics, GWAS studies and SNP prioritization

    Population genomics and phylogenetic analysis
