CSER consortium research, including oral platform presentations, posters, and scientific session presentations, will be featured at the American Society of Human Genetics 2017 Annual Meeting. This annual meeting is a forum for sharing and discussing the lastest research in human genetics, and features topics such as returning sequencing results to patients, diversity in genomics research, cancer genetics, gene expression, and more. The ASHG 2017 annual meeting will run from October 17 - 21 2017, in Orlando, Flrodia.

To aid all ASHG 2017 attendees, numerous resources are available, such as an online planner and events schedule. The CSER Twitter account will also be tweeting about ASHG 2017, so feel free to mention @hail_CSER to connect.

A full list of CSER work at ASHG 2017 can be found online here. Below is a sampling of CSER projects that will be showcased at ASHG 2017:
