GENOMICS 2006

 3rd International Workshop on Genomics Research

1st Cuban Workshop on Genomics

Second Announcement

November 4-10, 2006


Dear Colleague,

We are delighted to extend you a cordial invitation to Genomics 2006 which
will be held in Varadero (Hotel: Playa Varadero 1920) and Havana, Cuba
(CIGB) - from Nov 4 to 10, 2006.

Genomics 2006 should be a fruitful source of scientific exchange and
discussion among researchers from all over the world. The program will
include state-of-the-art lectures, discussions and short report
presentations from worldwide authorities in genomics and genetics. The
lectures will be delivered at the famous health resort of Varadero 4-8
Nov2006. More than 40 top-level speakers from 18 countries have confirmed
their attendance and will deliver lectures at Genomics 2006 in an intense
program. See below the list of confirmed speakers. For a weekly updated
list of confirmed speakers, countries and affiliations, as well as the
last version of the scientific program please visit the "speakers" and
"program" pages at our web site http://eventogenomica.cigb.edu.cu

There will also be a series of practical demonstrations which will be
organized in the days following the Theoretical Lectures (9-10 Nov) at the
CIGB lab facilities.

Participants are encouraged to send an abstract of their work. As a
novelty and  in an attempt of extending the possibility of knowing the
work of these groups by all the attendees selected works will be delivered
as 10 min short-report presentations

November is one of the most beautiful months in Cuba.
We wish to achieve a perfect mix of art and science, research, culture,
and paradisiacal beach. We sincerely hope you will be part of the
challenge.
We look forward to see you in Cuba in 2006 for what we expect to be a
stimulating and exciting meeting.

Yours sincerely,



Lidia Ines Novoa and Annia Ferrer
 Organizing Committee




Scope


Genomics 2006 follows the tradition of the CIGB International Workshops on
Genomic Research and comprises this year two important workshops: the 3rd
Workshop on Genomic Reseach and the 1st Cuban Workshop on Genomics. The
1st Cuban Workshop on Genomics is an International Workshop, organized and
sponsored by the INTERNATIONAL CENTRE FOR GENETIC ENGINEERING (ICGEB),
Trieste, Italy an international organization dedicated to advanced
research and training in molecular biology and biotechnology, with special
regard to the needs of the developing world.

The 3rd International Workshop on Genomic Reseach is organized this year
as a Satellite Meeting for the International Congress Biotechnology Havana
2006 . Genomics 2006 is organized to review the state of the art on
Genetics and Genomic of Complex Traits (High Blood Pressure,
Schizophrenia, Autoimmune Diseases), Study Design for Complex Traits, HLA
typing and Disease Association, SNPs, Haplotyping and Pharmacogenomics,
Databases, Bioinformatics and Statistical Analysis.

Genomics 2006 is aimed to teach the participants both theoretical basis
and practical applications of genomic research, genetics and molecular
biology methods. The main goal is to stimulate basic research in these
fields in Central and South American and the Caribbean countries. The
workshop also intends to encourage the development of local and regional
laboratories where different human samples will be collected and analysed
for genomic and genetic studies. The workshop has been planned as an
international forum for scientific exchange on all major areas of genomics
and human genetics, with an opportunity for each of the participants to
exchange views on the present state of knowledge, the emergence of new
concepts and the development of innovative techniques relevant to regional
problems.  Genomics 2006 will include a series of lectures, a range of
tutorials and a practical course embodying cutting-edge technology. The
workshop is intended for students and researchers with limited experience
in using different tools for genomic research and bioinformatics methods.


Main Topics


Lecture topics have been selected that have an emphasis on genomics
appropriate to the region. These will include:


1.      Human population genetic structure/substructure, founder effect,
drift, endogamy, consanguinity


2.      Immunogenetics, HLA Typing and Disease Association


3.      Genetic and Genomic of Complex Traits


4.      Statistical Methods for Population Genetic and Genomic


5.      Genetic Admixture methodology and application to complex diseases


6.      Pharmacogenomics


7.      Cancer genetics


8.      Genetic predisposition to disease (hypertension, diabetes,
Schizophrenia, etc)


9.      Molecular cytogenetics


10.  Single gene defects, especially the haemoglobinpathies/ thalassaemias


11.  Host susceptibility to infectious disease (SARS, AIDS, TB, Leprosy, etc)


12.  Diseases of adult-onset


13.  The design of community-based education and counseling
programs/community involvement in the prevention of genetic disease


14.  Establishment of disease registers/screening programs for diseases of
high local/regional/community prevalence.


15.  Ethical issues of human genetics.




Practical demonstrations will include:

1.	Pedigree creation using PROGENY and Cyrillic software.
2.	Genome and population data analysis: introduction to population
structure and differentiation, migration inference and genetic distance
matrix (ARLEQUIN software and others 3.	Linkage analysis including -
parametric methods (two-point and multipoint analysis); allele sharing
(nonparametric) methods for sib-pairs and extended families (two-point and
multipoint analysis), fine mapping, linkage admixture, association studies
(trios and case control, sample size estimation (extended families
[simulation studies], sib-pairs and case-control data) and estimating
empirical p-values. Introduction to GENEHUNTER/ALLEGRO and
LINKAGE/FASTLINK software 4.	Medical diagnosis, questionnaires and blood
sample collection and witness preservation. 5.	Genomic DNA purification,
evaluation, amplification and preservation. 6.	HLA genotyping by SSP, SSO
- PCR and sequencing.
7.	SNP analysis by sequencing
8.	Bioinformatics and data handling
