   The goal of the 2009 conference, “Human Genetic Variation, Health and
   Disease: New Knowledge, New Quantitative Challenges,� will be to bring
   together researchers from multiple disciplines (including geneticists,
   epidemiologists, statisticians and bioinformaticians) to discuss what
   we have learned and what we have yet to learn from genome-wide
   association studies, as well as emerging techniques for studying
   different types of genetic variation.

   The conference will focus on three important areas:


   Copy Number Variants
   Genome Wide Association Studies
   Next-generation Sequencing in Medical Genetics



   The conference consists of keynote and session presentations, along
   with panel discussions, round-table discussions, and a technology
   forum.

   All Registrants are encouraged to participate in submitting abstracts
   for the poster session. The top abstracts will be selected for either
   short talks to be presented at the conference, or for the Top Abstract
   Awards for travel assistance. To register and submit an abstract
