The annual IGES meeting for 2011 took place in Heidelberg, Germany, October September 18-20.
The educational session took place on the 18th and focused on Next Generation Sequencing. There were a few theoretical talks and many 'applied' talks where esteemed Genetic Epidemiologist spoke about their trials and tribulations in analyzing these new data sets.
