Repositive to Host Satellite Symposium at ESHG conference

Symposium to discuss better ways to Find and Access Human Data.

Cambridge, 17 May 2017 ... Repositive, the company that created the world’s largest portal for accessing human genomic research data, is hosting a satellite symposium at ESHG, on the 28th May in Copenhagen.

The satellite symposium, Finding and Access Human Genomic Data, will cover all aspects of human genetics, from cutting edge research into the human genome and individual genetic or chromosomal conditions, right through to the practical issues of organising genetic services to deliver the benefits of this knowledge. The event will be hosted by Manuel Corpas, a leading genomic researcher and author of Perfect DNA.

Alongside the symposium, Repositive will also have an exhibition stand and a poster presentation. The Repositive poster (No. P16.35C) will be within Poster Section P16 – Omics/Bioinformatics and the exhibition stand (No. 732) can be found throughout the event in the Exhibitor Hall C.

Manuel Corpas, Scientific Lead for Repositive and Symposium Organiser, said:

“With the explosion in the amount of human genomic data now available, searching for the most appropriate data can often be a challenge. We hope that by demonstrating a range of techniques to help users better search for data, coupled with the Repositive platform, we can help our growing community of researchers to find the right data to power their research.”
