The 2nd Annual Identification of noncoding pathogenic variants for rare disease Colloquium has been scheduled for Wednesday, January 15, 2020. Topics for the half-day meeting build off discussions from the first meeting, as well as collaborative efforts of numerous interdisciplinary teams over the past year. Presentations will include an overview of genomics at Duke, current efforts in interpreting the noncoding genome, and phenotype-specific talks in the context of identifying regulatory causes. The day will conclude with group discussions exploring long-term goals and outcomes.
The colloquium series serves to expand the collaborative community and increase awareness at Duke. Additionally, the meetings provide extended, dedicated, and structured time together to advance ongoing research, identify new directions and reinforce efforts to seek external funding.
The SOM interdisciplinary colloquia initiative supports efforts to unite faculty members from basic, translational, clinical and data science research areas around a shared biomedical question.
