Rat Genomics and Models 2012

Open in full size

will focus on the use of the rat (Rattus norvegicus) as a model for studying the etiology of complex diseases in humans, including hypertension, diabetes, renal failure, cancer and others.  The scientific sessions will be organized based on disease and/or technology focus and the participants will present data generated using a broad array of genetics- and genomics-based approaches and disease models.

Considerable attention will also be focused on the generation and annotation of an updated assembly of the rat reference genome, as well as on the relationship between genetic variation identified through whole genome sequencing of multiple inbred rat strains and disease and/or molecular phenotypes. 

iCS will attend this event.
