VarI community of special interest
The primary goal of the ISCB Variant Interpretation (VarI) community of special interest (COSI) is to outline and discuss
the recent advances in the methodology for the annotation and analysis of genetic variants. Building upon the experience of
the previous VarI and SNP COSI editions
Long Beach 2012,
and other international workshops and meetings
(e.g. AIMM2010, CAGI, HGVS 2010 and PSB2011) the VarI-COSI will serve to build a research network, facilitating the exchange
of ideas and the establishment of new collaborations within the community.
Thus, Vari-COSI will strive to meaningfully contribute to the management of
the complexity of the analysis and evaluation of genetic variants.

We are interested in works presenting original studies in all the fields of genetic variants research including, but not limited to "genetic variants in": sequence analysis, protein structure and function, protein interactions and molecular networks, transcriptomics and gene regulation, disease models and epidemiology, population genetics and evolution, comparative genomics. Abstracts and posters can be submitted through the following link
The VarI COSI meeting is broadly divided in two sessions (“Genetic variants as markers: evolution, populations, GWAS” and
“Genetic variants as effectors: function, structure, and regulation”) that encompass the four major research topics of
