 The first meetings in this series starting in 1991 in Oxford focussed on methodology developed to find mutations/variants in DNA. In the 25 years that have passed since, we find cheaper and cheaper methods being used to do the same but more sensitive, more effective and much faster. In addition, due to the enormously decreased sequencing cost, methodology concentrated in to one main method; sequencing. Consequently, attention and interest has shifted from detecting to evaluating variants; do they
effect the health of the individual?

The meeting aims to present the latest developments in the field, the best methodologies for scanning, sequencing, databasing, bio-informatic analysis, functional testing and classification of variants (mutations) in DNA, RNA and protein. The meeting will be presented in plenary format with notable invited speakers and speakers invited from submitted abstracts after peer review. The meeting will include Workshops on themes related to NGS pipelines and analysis, data collection and variation nomenclature.

We therefore invite you to submit your abstracts as soon as possible, and encourage your hard working staff to travel to Santiago de Compostela for this special meeting. As we wish to release the programme as far ahead as possible in advance of the meeting, we will be very strict on abstract deadlines.
