Human evolution in the genomic era: Origins, populations and phenotypes
Sono aperte le iscrizioni per partecipare, come relatore o osservatore, alla EMBO Conference dal titolo “Human evolution in the genomic era: Origins, populations and phenotypes”, prevista a Leicester (UK) dall’1 al 4 aprile 2014
Molecular studies of human evolution have undergone an extraordinary transformation in the last decade. The analysis of human genetic diversity has shifted from locus-specific to genome-wide, with new molecular techniques and informatic methods, and their application in large-scale collaborative projects. This revolution is providing new insights into the human past, into mutation rates and recombination processes, and into adaptation and the molecular and evolutionary basis of genetic disease. This EMBO Conference aims to provide an accessible opportunity for early-career researchers and PhD students to exchange ideas and knowledge with each other, and with key senior investigators who have contributed some of the major advances. The meeting represents a dynamic and stimulating forum for discussing the state of the art and future of this field.
