Abstract Submission

We invite and encourage submission of abstracts from scientists who have used, or will describe how they plan to use, the GTEx project data. A small number of abstracts may be considered for an oral presentation. The remainder will be considered for posters.

Abstract Preparation Guidelines
Abstract title, author list, affiliations and content must fit in one double spaced A4 page with 12-point Arial font. The title should be bolded. Title, author list, affiliations should be listed immediately below the title, separated by one empty line. An additional empty line should separate affiliations and abstract content. Abstracts should be submitted in a single page Microsoft Word document, which can be uploaded below. The abstract submission deadline is May 4, 2015.
