Genome Sequence Variation and the Inherited Basis of Common Disease and Complex Traits
Organizer(s): David M. Altshuler, Peter Donnelly and Trudy F.C. MacKay
Date: January 08 - 13, 2006
Location: Big Sky Resort, Big Sky, MT, USA
Supported by The Director's Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Common human diseases and most other traits vary in a continuous manner, modified by multiple genes and environmental influences. Rapidly expanding information about genome sequence variation is making it possible, for the first time, to conduct well-powered searches for the inherited contributors to common diseases and other complex phenotypes. Success will provide insight into the genetic architecture of quantitative characters, the evolutionary history of trait variation, and the etiology of common human diseases. This meeting aims to bring together investigators from population genetics, genomics, quantitative genetics, epidemiology and medical research to examine these problems from a variety of perspectives.
