The goal of this Symposium is to explore human genetic and phenotypic variability in the light of recent developments in genomics, genetics and molecular medicine. The topics covered will include the mechanisms of mutation, normal sequence variation from the DNA to the chromosomal level, functional polymorphism and disease genetics.
Keynote Lectures will be delivered by Svante Pääbo, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, and Kári Stefánsson, deCODE genetics.
