Since the 1st Variant Effect Prediction Training Course (VEPTC) in 2016, Global Variome has held this annual training course as part of its mission to build capacity in the practice of responsible genomics and contribute to improving global health outcomes. Global Variome along with the Human Genome Variation Society (HGVS) have now merged with The Human Genome Organisation (HUGO) International who will continue to offer educational courses and conferences to advance genome science and technology.
This course will be held from the 20th to the 22nd of September 2022 at the University of Nicosia and the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics, Nicosia, Cyprus. An online attendance option will also be available to those unable to attend in person. The course will be a mix of theory and practice presented by invited expert speakers. Practical sessions will be a mix of academic and commercial demonstrations giving course participants experience with genome informatics tools.
