GTEx Project Community Scientific Meeting

The 2016 GTEx Project Community Meeting will be held at Stanford University. The meeting will highlight current data sets and types available, various tools being developed for these data types, and results from applying them to the data. The relationship of the project to other NIH projects and data sets, such as ENCODE, GWAS and Cancer projects will be highlighted, and strong emphasis will be placed on showcasing a range of scientific presentations that use GTEx data.

We encourage your participation and submission of abstracts for talks or posters! Please tell us how you currently use or plan to use GTEx data.

Abstracts are due by May 16th, 2016 and
can be submitted through registration.

About the Genotype-Tissue Expression project
The Genotype-Tissue Expression project (GTEx) aims to create a public atlas of human gene expression and its regulation across multiple tissue types, enabling the research community to dissect the effect of genetic variation and gene expression, and to aid in the functional interpretation of genetic associations with disease.

GTEx data are now available at dbGaP and the GTEx Portal.
