Rat Genomics and Models Meeting

Registration is now open and abstracts are currently being accepted for the upcoming 2014 Rat Genomics and Models meeting in Hinxton, UK:


Rat Genomics and Models 1-4 December 2014

Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge, UK

Abstract and Bursary Deadline: 20 October   |    Registration Deadline: 3 November

The 9th Rat Genomics and Models conference will focus on the use of the rat (Rattus norvegicus) as a model for studying the aetiology of complex diseases in humans, including hypertension, diabetes, renal failure, neurological disorders and cancer. The scientific sessions focus on disease and/or technology and participants will present data generated using a broad array of genetics- and genomics-based approaches and disease models.     The diverse program will feature a variety of scientific sessions from genomics and integrative biology to modelling complex genetic disease and updates on the latest, state-of-the-art technologies and approaches for manipulating the rat genome. Abstract submissions from all areas relevant to rat genomics and rat models are encouraged; several oral presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts.

Scientific sessions will include: Genomics Manipulating the genome Cardiovascular disease Neurobiology and addiction Tumour biology Metabolism and inflammation Integrative biology Emerging areas
