Welcome to the GEUVADIS website
We are committed to gaining insights into the human genome and its role in health and medicine by sharing data, experience and expertise in high-throughput sequencing.
The purpose of this website is to keep you up to date with the project, and to help you find accessible information about genomics and personalised medicine.
Upcoming Geuvadis Events
Data protection in an era of consumer targeted genome sequencing
GEUVADIS Symposia at Fondation Brocher
3-5 February 2013
This symposium brings together legal specialists in Data Protection and social science experts on direct to consumer genetic testing. It aims to inform discussions on all aspects of data protection and direct to consumer genetic testing: legal; ethical; and social.
There will be ample opportunity for discussion and it is run in conjunction with the geuvadis (genetic European variation in disease) EU project that is particularly concerned with high-throughput genetic sequencing.
Call for presentations:
10 min presentations on any legal, ethical or social aspects of data protection, genome sequencing or direct to consumer genetic testing are invited.
Abstract (250 words) should be submitted to email@example.com
ENGAGE-GEUVADIS RNA-seq data analysis course
Peter 't Hoen and Gabriella Rustici
EBI campus, in Hinxton, UK
4-6 December 2012
With sponsoring from the ENGAGE and GEUVADIS consortia, partners EBI and LUMC are organizing a course on RNA-seq data analysis for participants from both EU consortia.
The course will be held from December 4-6, 2012 at the EBI campus, in Hinxton, UK.
It involves a three-day program with lectures and many hands-on sessions covering the following topics: introduction to RNA-seq technology, quality assessment, alignment tools, statistical analysis of differential expression, eQTL analysis, miRNA-seq and archiving of RNA-seq data. For a full program and speakers, please visit the website: http://www.ebi.ac.uk/training/onsite/121204_ENGAGE.html
The course is aimed at PhD students and postdocs that have familiarity with the technology and the biological use cases of high throughput sequencing . Experience in R is desirable.
Registration costs including housing and meals are £150. You can register here: http://www.ebi.ac.uk/training/events/121204_Engage.html
