Save the Date: Symposium on Linking Disease Model Phenotypes to Human Conditions

Monarch is co-hosting a NIH Symposium titled “Linking Disease Model Phenotypes to Human Conditions” on September 10-11, 2015 at the Fishers Lane Auditorium, NIH, Rockville, MD. 
The purpose of the meeting is to convene a colloquium on the current status of Phenomics and its role in closing the gap that exists between biomedical research and clinical medical practice. The wealth of whole organism, cellular, and molecular data generated in the research laboratory must be translated into clinically relevant knowledge that enables the physician to make the best possible treatment decisions. Phenomics is gaining momentum due to the availability of the complete genomes for many organisms as well as higher throughput methods to genetically modify model organism genomes and observe and record phenotypes. Disease models comprise some of the most important tools of biomedical research. The efficacy of the use of disease models is based upon the principles of evolutionary conservation between sp…
