Rare Disease: Australian Functional Genomics National Conference

The Rare Disease: Australian Functional Genomics National Conference will bring together the diverse model systems communities involved in disease gene discovery and characterisation, with the aim of enabling the rapid translation of genomics findings to a diagnosis of disease.

Invited speakers will showcase the increasing need for functional genomics in the patient diagnosis pipeline and the benefits and logistics of an array of model organism research for variant classification and therapeutic screening.

Abstract Submission open now and close August 13th
