Genetic Approaches to Schizophrenia, 1988-04-17 - 1988-04-20

Scope and Contents The Genetic Approaches in Schizophrenia meeting brought together expert geneticists and psychiatrists who have been studying the genetics of schizophrenia. The aim of the meeting was to determine if the armamentarium of molecular genetics that has been applied so successfully in other human inherited disorders can be applied to schizophrenia. However, it became clear during the course of the meeting that so little is known about the underlying biology of schizophrenia, and its definitive...

Molecular Cytogenetics Bridging the Resolution Gap, 1989-10-30 - 1989-11-02

Scope and Contents

The meeting, Molecular Cytogenetics: Bridging the Resolution Gap, examined new strategies for handling and analyzing DNA intermediate in size between the DNAs studied by cytogenetics and by cloning techniques. It seems that although one can optimize techniques and strategies, a considerable element of luck is involved in finding a sought-after gene in kilobases of DNA.

Molecular Genetics of Breast Cancer, 1991

Scope and Contents Molecular Genetics of Breast Cancer meeting showed that progress is being made in determining the genetic factors that are involved in breast cancer.The meeting brought together scientists who are following two different lines of research in the pursuit of the genetic causes of breast cancer.Epidemiologists and population geneticists are using linkage studies to map genes in families with a high incidence of breast cancer, and at this meeting,they were able to compare their data from...
