Pan Arab Human Genetics Conference 2018

Jan 18 - Jan 20
Venue: The Conrad Dubai

The theme of this year’s Pan Arab Human Genetics Conference is ‘The Omics Era’ and offers a comprehensive program which highlights precision medicine, big data in human genetics, genomics of multifactorial disorders and current trends in human genetics (genome editing, human microbiome, and metabolomics).

There will be also be two parallel workshops taking place on the last day of the conference. The first workshop will address genetic counselling for Arab populations. It will tackle perspectives of prevention and psychosocial issues through case studies in an interactive session.
The second workshop is about genetic variation and gene regulation. Dr. Emily Perry (Pritchard) and Dr. Erin Haskell, both from Ensembl, will familiarise wetlab researchers in data types and Biomart, and share hands-on experience in the use of the Ensembl genome browser.

Paediatricians, obstetrics/gynaecologists, medical students and nurses are welcome to participate in the workshops, but spaces are limited, so be sure to register as soon as possible.
