2008 Golden Helix Symposium

"Copy Number Variation and genomic alterations in health and disease"

DIVANI Caravel hotel, 28-29 November 2008, Athens, Greece


We are very pleased to welcome you to the 2008 Golden Helix Symposium on Copy Number Variation and Genomic Alterations in Health andDisease in the Divani Caravel Hotel, Athens, Greece.Chromosome analysis remains one of the most commonly performed diagnostic genetic tests. Microarray-based comparative genomic hybridization (array-CGH) allows analysis of the genome at a signi_cantly higher resolution than previously possible. The 2008 Golden Helix Symposium on 'Copy number variation and genomic alterations in health and includes lectures by more than 20 international leading scientists in the field and covers all aspects of this exciting new field, from technologies and population genomics, through chromosomal and other disorders, to validation and development of a uniform array-CGH design.

We sincerely hope that this meeting will meet your expectations and set a precedent for future high-standard symposia in this and other disciplines in the field of human genomics and personalized medicine.
