This is a uniquely fascinating time in human genetics and genomics, as the field moves beyond the cataloguing of associated variation towards fundamental biological inference and translational implementation.
The programme will cover a range of topics including our current understanding of the genomics of rare and complex human diseases. There will be sessions addressing gene regulation and functional analysis.
The latest advances in sequencing technology and the future of whole genome and clinical sequencing will also be discussed. The schedule is highly interactive with presentations by the tutors and students on cutting-edge topics in human genomics.
The summer school is more akin to a ‘science summer camp’ for graduate students with discussions and debates on the future of human genomics. A unique feature is the one-to-one mentoring on all aspects of genomics, including advice on publishing and pursuing an academic research career.

The International BioBased Economy Student SymbioSUM (IBBESS) is an entrepreneurial project carried out by a team of multidisciplinary students from Wageningen University and supported by the Centre for BioBased Economy (CBBE), the International Energy Agency (IEA) and EuropaBio, among other key players.
Check the website (www.ibbess.org) IBBESS is a platform intended to facilitate the connection of students to institutions, companies, politics and the general public that are involved in the biobased economy.
It is from students for students, our main target being MSc students from European universities with different backgrounds but a common interest for the Biobased Economy. The event will take place from 29th till 31st August 2016 at Wageningen University.
It will comprise two main features:
A Conference with expert lectures and discussions on the 3 different pillars (technology, economy and society) of biobased economy and a Think Tank workshop based on real-cases provided by companies and guided by professionals (Teach to Fish).
Besides Master students, phD and bachelor students can also apply for the full event. Other professionals can apply for attending the Conference part.
