Practical Workshops

Delegates will be split into groups for the practical workshops.

ACMG Workshop - We encourage you to bring your difficult to classify variants with you to work on during the workshop.

HGVS Nomenclature Workshop - We encourage you to bring any variants you are having trouble naming with you to the workshop.

HPO Workshop - If you are unclear about how to describe a phenotype using HPO, bring it with you to the workshop.

The experts are there to help you throughout the Course, please make time to meet with them.

YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN LAPTOP TO PARTICIPATE IN THE COURSE.
