Organised by Pathology Queensland

Genomics Workshop 1 explored the impact of genomics on clinical care and provided background information on classical and molecular genetics, genetic mutations, molecular and cyto-genomic techniques as well as the associated diagnostic and technical issues.

Workshop 2 will build on knowledge gained from Workshop 1 and will focus on the social and familial impact of genomics, cytogenetic analysis and the detection and interpretation of germline and somatic sequence variants.


  • Social and Familial Impact of Genomics
  • Cytogenetic Analysis
  • Introductory Bioinformatics
  • Variant Curation for Germline Diseases
  • Variant Curation for Somatic Mutations
