Experts in functional genomics, protein science, precision medicine, variant interpretation, and computational genetics will convene July 13 and 14 in the UK to discuss and debate what it means to bring “function to the genome” at the sixth annual Mutational Scanning Symposium.
Wellcome Connecting Science will be hosting the conference, in association with the Atlas of Variant Effects Alliance. The Brotman Baty Institute, once again, is co-sponsoring the event, which will be in-person and virtual. Registration is open.
BBI’s Dr. Lea Starita is member of the symposium’s Scientific Program Committee.
“This annual symposium is ‘a must’ for anyone interested in the intersection MAVE and precision medicine, whether participating in-person or virtually,” Starita said.
Discussions will center on a variety of topics, including:
- Computational variant effect prediction
- Saturation mutagenesis
- Sequence/structure/function relationships
- High throughput assays and
- Protein engineering.
Symposium participants will also explore emerging technologies for functional assays, as well as discuss how to apply functional data to clinical practice.
Confirmed speakers include scientists and clinicians from several nations: China, India, Spain, Belgium, Australia, as well as the UK and the United States.
Two important deadlines are approaching on May 16: submitting an abstract for presentation and applying for a workshop. Note that abstracts will only be considered from registered delegates.
