IJMS is sponsoring the Gordon Research Conference on Human Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms and Disease. The meeting will be held in Easton, MA, USA from 3 to 8 August 2014.
The conference will bring together people that work on diverse experimental and computational aspects related to inferring and analyzing the effect of human mutations on protein function and their role in causing cancer and rare diseases. The topic of this conference, which has not been addressed in previous Gordon meetings, will attract researchers for essential discussions and exchanging ideas.
