Quantitative Genetics and Genomics Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) is organized by Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) and will be held from Feb 09 - 10, 2019 at Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco Resort & Spa, Lucca, Tuscany, Italy.
In the fast-moving field of quantitative genetics, some of the most exciting and cutting-edge work and ideas come from graduate students and post-doctoral researchers. The Gordon Research Seminar on Quantitative Genetics and Genomics is a unique forum for graduate students and post-docs from human, and plant genetics to present their current work, exchange ideas, share insights, and establish new collaborations. There will be opportunities to meet and interact with senior scientists during the seminar. A mentoring session will be organized on the second day, where small groups composed of attendees and mentors will discuss topics related to careers in quantitative genetics.
The focus of this year’s meeting is the opportunities and challenges of working with big data. Big data encompasses and is not limited to: large sample sizes; multiple phenotypes, tissue types or molecular layers; diverse genetic backgrounds; rich environmental or context information; novel data-types generated through both high throughput and targeted experiments. We will discuss the insights we gain into the genetics of complex traits using diverse datasets, the challenges we need to overcome, and the opportunities for future research. Statistical, computational, and experimental methods will be presented.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
