B·Debate: Enhancing the usage of human genomics data for the benefit of all: Genotype Tissue Expression (GTEx) Project Scientific Community meeting

Activity start date:  20.04.2017
Activity end date:  21.04.2017

Organized by: 

B·Debate (an initiative of Biocat and Obra Social "la Caixa"), Centre for Genomic Regulation and GTEx

Collaborators: 

Broad Institute, The Company of Biologists

Venue: 

Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB) · Auditorium · C/ Doctor Aiguader, 88 · Barcelona

The Genotype-Tissue Expression project (GTEx) has created a comprehensive public atlas of gene expression and regulation across multiple human tissues. The resource is already providing valuable insights into the tissue specific mechanisms of gene regulation, enabling studies of expression quantitative trait loci (eQTLs), and alternative splicing, and enhacing the interpretation of genome-wide association studies and disease mechanisms.

The GTEx Community meeting is held annually and is open to the scientific community who are interested in learning more about the project and data, or who are already using the data in their research. Prior meetings have been held in the US at the Broad Institute (2014), the University of Chicago (2015) and at Stanford University (2016). This year, for the first time the meeting will be held in Europe,, in Barcelona in April, following the completion of the main producion phase of GTEx data.  It will aim to congregate a community of scientists from all over the world that are using, or that plan to benefit from using, the GTEx data.

Scientific leaders of this debate are Roderic Guigó from Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) and Kristin Ardlie from Broad Institute.
