We skipped the first half of the afternoon session. None of the two tracks seemed particularly interesting to us, so Søren took the time to prepare slides for his presentation tomorrow, and I spent the time reading some of the papers from the morning session.
In the second half of the session there was a track on association mapping and genomic variation that we went to.
Unfortunately, it was held in the main conference hall that they, for some reason, keep insainly hot, so if you are still running on GMT+1 time (and wake up at 5am local time) it is almost guaranteed to put you to sleep.
We managed to hear the first two presentations, but then we left. Too bad, I would really have liked to hear the other two as well, but I just cannot keep awake in there.
The two presentations we did manage to hear were
Copy-number-variation and copy-number-alteration region detection by cumulative plots W Li, A Lee and PK Gregersen
on a new type of plots that should make it easier to identify copy-number-variation from SNP genotyped data from a single diploid individual, and
Identifying disease associations via genome-wide association studies W Huang, P Wang, Z Liu and L Zhang
on looking for genetic commonalities between diseases by clustering regions of SNPs with (marginally) significant association with the diseases.
