  • Abstracts have been published in Genetic Epidemiology, and are available online here.

BREAKING NEWS!

We are pleased to announce our late breaking Session on Genetic Epidemiology of COVID-19 and SARS-COV-2. This session will be held July 4th from 9am EDT - 11am EDT (14h00-16h00 in the UK; 9pm - 11pm in Beijing). This session is also at no cost to attend!

 

Additional Updates:

  • The population biobank session will be postponed until our IGES 2021 meeting, to be held just outside Montreal (October 15-18, 2021).
  • Given the current fluidity of the COVID-19 situation, the presenters of our Educational Workshop on “Best Practices for Polygenic Scores” will consider alternative options of sharing workshop materials. Additional information will be sent later.
  • If you were registered for the Seoul conference, please contact the Organizers if your registration refund has not been processed.

Sincerely,
IGES Administration
