CRISPR and Beyond: Perturbations at Scale to Understand Genomes Virtual Conference

September 22 2020 @ 12:45 PM - September 25 2020 @ 4:20 PM

This year’s programme will cover approaches that modulate the genome and its context at scale, from single nucleotides and genes to hundreds of growth environments.

Topics will include:

  • Understanding impact of coding variants
  • Measuring consequences of non-coding variation
  • Genetic screens to ascertain function in cells and organisms
  • Base editing at scale
  • Gene editing and disease
  • Interactions with genes, drugs, and environment
  • Single-cell approaches
  • New technology for readouts and perturbations

The conference will bring together biomedical researchers working on high throughput screening, genome engineering, and/or variant effect interpretation. Abstracts on all major themes of this meeting to oral or poster presentations are welcome.

Abstract deadline 21st July 2020, registration deadline 14th September. Please see the Wellcome Genome Campus website for more information.

With any Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) test ordered, a Record of Discussion (RoD) form will also need to be submitted. This document is to record the patient’s consent for genomic testing and their choice on taking part in research. Guidance on the patient choice conversation can be found here
This RoD form will be available for clinicians to download from this webpage. Once completed with the patient, it can be send to the lab with the corresponding test order form and sample.
Tests available to order will be listed in the National Genomic Test Directory. A test order form will soon be made available for clinicians on this webpage to download and complete. This form will include the address of the laboratory that the appropriate sample and completed form needs to be sent to.
Until the new Genomic Laboratory Service goes live, please continue to follow existing test order processes.
Later this year, the online test ordering tool for Whole Genome Sequencing will be integrated into the National Genomics Informatics System (NGIS) and clinicians will be able to search or filter to find a clinical indication, confirm eligibility criteria and start the test request process for their patient.
