Since the 1st Variant Effect Prediction Training Course (VEPTC) in 2016, Global Variome; The Human Variome Project (HVP) has held yearly training courses in Variant Effect Prediction as part of its mission to build capacity in the practice of responsible genomics and contribute to improving global health outcomes. Global Variome focusses on increasing both the quality and quantity of genomic knowledge that is collected, curated, interpreted and shared for clinical practice.
This course will be held virtually from the 21st to the 23rd of September 2021. 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.
We invite you to submit an abstract (but you do not need to) and look forward to your participation at this dynamic event.
Who is the Course for?
Expected Participants are people working in a DNA laboratory including clinical diagnostic labs involved in DNA sequencing data analysis.
Expected knowledge – basic knowledge of molecular biology (DNA, RNA, protein), molecular biology lab technologies (esp. sequencing) and (human) genetics.
The language of instruction will be ENGLISH.
How will VEPTC 2021 be held?
VEPTC 2021 will be an immersive virtual event. The time-zone used throughout the program is Central European Time (UTC + 1). We will schedule the program to allow live participation from a large number of time-zones.
Core topics will be delivered live with ample opportunity for Q & A. We wish to deliver a comprehensive program therefore due to time constraints some topics will be delivered as on-demand content that will be available for six months.
