KOMP2-IMPC Annual Fall Meeting (2018)

October 2, 2018
Rockville Hilton Hotel
Rockville, Maryland

Knockout Mouse

On October 2, 2018, the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) will host the Knockout Mouse Phenotyping Program (KOMP2) and International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC)'s annual meeting at the Rockville Hilton in Rockville, Maryland.

The meeting is focused on KOMP's collaborations with various human disease gene discovery programs. The day will feature talks and discussions from current and potential collaborators, specifically groups focused on human genes and variants who may find KOMP data helpful for their efforts. These include the Centers for Mendelian Genetics (CMG), Trans-Omics for Precision Medicine (TopMed), Gabriella Miller Kids First Pediatric Research Program (Kids First) and the Undiagnosed Disease Network (UDN).
