Variant Detection 2017: bringing you the very best in human genetics related to variant detection, sequencing, and interpretation

Publication Date: Friday, 17 March 2017

The first meetings in this series starting in 1991 in Oxford focussed on methodology developed to find mutations/variants in DNA. In the 25 years that have passed since, we find cheaper and cheaper methods being used to do the earlybird ends 31st March same but more sensitive, more effective and much faster. In addition, due to the enormously decreased sequencing cost, methodology concentrated in one main method; sequencing. Consequently, attention and interest has shifted from detecting to evaluating variants; do they effect the health of the individual?
