This third Human Variome Project Meeting will formally discuss the next steps to be taken and planned for the project particularly surrounding "Implementation and Integration".
The aim of this meeting is to determine the major ways in which the recommendations and actions from the first meetings can be best implemented in a global collaborative context to prepare the systems necessary to routinely and systematically gather the deluge of variations in genes causing disease (mutations) now being discovered, as there will be at least, 100 to 1000 mutations in each of the 20,000 human genes.
This meeting will bring together key individuals who are currently working on the necessary components and the development of the systems relevant to the task, including those working on pilot systems.
