Genotype to Phenotype: Focus on Disease
Organizer(s): Uta Francke and Stylianos E. Antonarakis
Date: February 19 - 24, 2002
Location: Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza Hotel, Santa Fe, NM, USA
Sponsored by Roche Diagnostics
Summary of Meeting:
In the post-genome era, the greatest challenge is to unravel the mechanisms by which mutant genes, or genes present in abnormal dosage, lead to disease phenotypes or predispositions. The combined use of molecular and cell biology with informatics and generation of animal models is making rapid inroads in disease gene identification and elucidation of the molecular basis of disease. Knowledge of developmental and signaling pathways gained in model organisms is translated into understanding human disease mechanisms. New paradigms need to be developed to handle the wealth of information provided by the genome sequence and expression profiling strategies to systematically approach the study of common and rare diseases. The goal of this symposium is to survey the recent advances in understanding the molecular pathogenesis of selected disorders caused by single gene mutations, complex multigenic predispositions or gene dosage imbalances and to bring together clinical scientists, molecular geneticists and computational biologists to focus on the collaborative opportunities between the scientific disciplines.
