 1st International Summer School in Functional Genomics (International workshops, meetings or symposia)
PlaceThe Panum Institute, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
 DateAugust 13, 2007 - August 24, 2007
WhoOrganizers: Niels Tommerup, Zeynep Tümer, Lars Allan Larsen, Jan Gorodkin
AbstractThe aim of the Summer School is to bring young scientific talents at master student/pre-phd-level together from different countries. The main theme is exploration of genes and function of genomic regions through chromosomal and genomic rearrangements. The course will include practical experiments on genome mapping, in situ hybridization, sequencing and bioinformatics, starting from novel chromosomal aberrations detected in a model disorder. The students will assess whether novel candidate genes could be involved in disease development through experimentation.
