SNP Course XIV: SNPs and Human Diseases – new date!

18 – 22 November, 2019

The analysis of DNA variations, including Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs), is a standard research approach to understand causes of disease, in particular the so-called “complex” diseases such as diabetes, osteoporosis, cancer, Alzheimer disease, etc. The field is changing fast with large scale projects (Human genome, dbSNP, HapMap, 1000genomes, ENCODE) and novel technology being continuously introduced, including Next Generation Sequencing. The aim of this course is to give a broad introduction in SNP techniques and applications.
