ASHG 2014, San Diego

ashg2014logoThe 64th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Human Genetics will be held at the San Diego Convention Center (SDCC) in San Diego, California, from Saturday, October 18 through Wednesday, October 22, 2014. The ASHG 2014  Annual Meeting is the largest human genetics meeting and exposition in the world.


We’re pleased to report that Vivien Sheehan, an assistant professor of pediatrics at Texas Children’s Hospital and winner of a grant to use Ingenuity Variant Analysis in 2012, will be presenting some of her remarkable work at ASHG. Look for her on Tuesday, October 21, in the 4:30 pm–6:30 pm session entitled “From Association to Function in Complex Traits.”


There will be several posters from customers featuring data analysis incorporating Ingenuity Variant Analysis or Ingenuity Pathway Analysis. Check out the poster sessions on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday to see them (we recommend searching for “Ingenuity” or “QIAGEN” in ASHG’s abstract finder to locate them).
