Mini-Symposium of the Disease Maps Community

03 October 2017, MSA, Campus Belval, Luxembourg

Title: “Disease maps – a key element of health data integration and visualization.”

Recent advances in the area of health research allow for collecting large volumes of clinical and molecular data including data from NGS. Here we would like to present and discuss tools and applications that allow to manage the challenging task of data integration, analysis and visualisation. We will demonstrate how to structure knowledge and combine different sources of information to discover for instance relationships between genetic variants and specific disease phenotypes thereby putting special emphasis on use of contextualized “Disease Maps” for data visualization and analysis.

Interested? Please feel free to join our satellite meeting.
