Variant Effect Prediction Training Course

2 – 4 October 2023

Barcelona, Spain


 In-person and virtual

 We are super-excited to announce that due to high demand we are now offering a virtual option for the course!  ??

If you want to experience a greater level of personal instruction, we recommend the in-person course however only a few in-person places remain so hurry to secure your spot!
Virtual attendees can follow live-streamed sessions and workshops, view the recordings, and have the opportunity to ask questions. 
By attending in-person you will have the opportunity to ask as many questions as possible, be assisted during the workshops and meet with speakers during the breaks and at the end of the day. In-person attendees will also have the opportunity to collaborate with other attendees and instructors in a supportive and engaging learning environment.  


In summary:

The  Variant Effect Prediction Training Course - veptc 2023  will be held 2nd to 4th October in Barcelona, Spain and will also be live-streamed.

This course is suitable for researchers, clinicians, and students who want to gain a deeper understanding of how genetic variants affect protein function and disease risk. Our expert instructors will guide you through the latest methods and tools for variant effect prediction.  Our course is highly interactive and hands-on, with practical exercises and case studies that will help you apply what you learn to real-world scenarios.

By the end of the course, you should:


  • have a better understanding of which test to use.
  • know where and how to find all the relevant sources for variant interpretation.
  • ultimately improve the quality of your genetic diagnostic process.

Don't miss this chance to boost your knowledge and skills in variant effect prediction. 

Register now to secure your place. We look forward to seeing you there!

HUGO Clinical Genomics & Genomic Medicine
Educational Sub-committee Survey

Dear Colleagues

The Human Genome Organization (HUGO) Clinical Genetics and Genomics Education sub-committee is seeking input on use of genetic and genomic data and resources from practicing physicians.  The survey is intended for a wide range of physicians; however, if you are a clinical geneticist or medical geneticist, this survey is not intended for you.The survey data will be used to develop clinical and general education resources for healthcare providers across the globe. Data collected will be aggregated in a de-identified fashion.  Please assist HUGO’s education effort by taking the survey at the QR Code or link below.
Importantly, please also share the survey across your professional network of physicians or appropriate professional societies

The survey can be completed at this link, hosted by The Jackson Laboratory:  On behalf of the Human Genome Organization, thank you.

HUGO is open for future biddings!

HUGO 15th International Symposium on Variants in the Genome

13 - 15 May 2024
Porto, Portugal 

We’re excited to announce that registration and abstract submission is open for the 15th International Symposium on Variants in the Genome: detection, sequencing, interpretation (isv24) to be held 13th to 15th May 2024 in Porto, Portugal! 

The symposium focuses on cutting-edge developments for scanning, sequencing, databasing, and bioinformatics analysis of variants in DNA, RNA, and protein. With technology setting the pace, understanding how variants effect the health of an individual has become crucial and is quickly changing the way genomic data is interpreted. This symposium will also give special emphasis to the capabilities and methods for functional testing and classification of genomic variants related to disease.

A stellar line-up of keynote speakers and leading researchers from around the world together with speakers invited from submitted abstracts after peer review will present their research. The meeting will also include interactive workshops on topics related to clinical interpretation of variants and data collection. The Symposium provides an excellent platform, motivating participants to share knowledge and network with international experts in all areas of human genetics.  The event will feature a series of keynote lectures, oral presentations, and poster sessions, covering a wide range of topics.
As a participant, you will have the opportunity to network with other professionals in the field, share your research findings, and learn about the latest tools and techniques for analysing genomic data. This symposium is also an excellent opportunity for students and early-career researchers to showcase their work and receive feedback from experts in the field.

We invite you to submit your abstracts and encourage you to travel to the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage city of Porto, Portugal to learn and participate at this dynamic meeting.

Please visit our symposium website for more information and to register for the event. We look forward to welcoming you to Porto in May 2024 and sharing in the exchange of ideas and research in genomics.
