We are pleased to announce the 7th Curating the Clinical Genome conference, which aims to bring together the international clinical genomics and biodata communities to discuss best practices for the clinical use of genomic data, including variant interpretation, clinical utility, and the consensus generation of curated knowledge.
This event will be of interest to a wide group of medical genomics researchers, clinicians and clinical scientists practicing genomic medicine, companies developing solutions for clinical genomics and data scientists interested in genomic data sharing.
The sharing of genetic data from clinical diagnostic testing and the generation of consensus-curated knowledge is vital for delivering on the promise of genomic medicine. The growing recognition of the power of global data sharing has led to the establishment of major initiatives, such as ClinGen and DECIPHER consortia, which have spearheaded this conference series. The focus of this year’s meeting is to bring together these and other national/regional initiatives to develop common standards (guidelines and resources), share best practices, integrate the recent research findings and help drive patient benefits.
This conference will be a hybrid meeting – with onsite or virtual attendance. The programme will also include short oral presentations selected from abstracts, posters, poster pitches and a panel discussion on iterative reporting where more panel members will be invited from the registered delegates.
‘Clinical Application of MAVE Data’ workshop
After the conference, on the afternoon of 12 July, a workshop will be jointly hosted by the scientific committee of the Curating the Clinical Genome and the Mutational Scanning Symposium to discuss the potential use of mutational scanning data in variant classification in clinical practice.
