Genome Variation and Human Health

In 2014, the Human Genome Organisation (HUGO) is organizing the Human Genome Meeting 2014 entitled “Genome Variation and Human Health” which will be held in the beautiful and international city of Geneva in Switzerland.

With the recent advances of genome structure and function at the individual basis, the genome analysis is rapidly becoming an important tool in biomedical research and promises to make a substantial impact in global health.

This conference will explore all aspects of genome exploration and its impact in international health. Technology development, bioinformatics tools, genome-transcriptome-other “omics” issues, epigenetic aspects, ethical, legal, social and financial topics, population-specific particularities, individualized medical aspects, actionable genomic variation, animal models, metagenomes, single-cell biology, diagnostic and therapeutic issues, advanced genomic technologies, and many other related topics will be presented and discussed by world leaders in the their fields.

We encourage delegates to use this conference as a meeting place to assemble their academic interest-groups for global deliberations. This HGM 2014 on the “Genome Variation and Human Health”' will be an intellectually broad and exciting event at which ideas and researchers from around the world interact.

  • Objective: this section should contain 1-2 sentences that clearly indicate the scientific question of the study and its clinical (or other) importance.
  • Methods: this section should contain sufficient information to be able to understand the experimental design, the analytical techniques and the statistics used in the study.
  • Results: this section should contain objective data to answer the scientific question(s).
  • Conclusions: this section should provide only conclusions of the study directly supported by the results, along with implications for clinical practice, avoiding speculation and overgeneralisation.
  • References: this section is not mandatory but recommended.
