The second annual Conference in Quantitative Genomics will be held Sept. 23-25 at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH). Hosted by the Program in Quantitative Genomics at the School, “Emerging Quantitative Issues in Parallel Sequencing” is supported with a grant from the National Cancer Institute and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.

The conference will be held in the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School (HMS) and is co-sponsored by HSPH, HMS, and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, as well as corporate sponsors.

The focus of the conference will be to examine the interplay between emerging sequencing technologies, basic and population sciences, and data analysis methods. Geneticists, computational biologists, and statisticians will participate in discussions regarding applications of massive parallel sequencing.

All registrants are encouraged to participate in submitting abstracts for a poster session. The top abstracts will be selected for short talks to be presented at the conference or for abstract awards for travel assistance. To register or submit an abstract, visit
