Track -2: Medical Genetics:

Medical genetics is the branch of medicine that involves the diagnosis and management of hereditary disorders. Medical genetics differs from human genetics in that human genetics is a field of scientific research that may or may not apply to medicine, while medical genetics refers to the application of genetics to medical care. For example, research on the causes and inheritance ofgenetic disorders would be considered within both human genetics and medical genetics, while the diagnosis, management, and counselling people with genetic disorders would be considered part of medical genetics.

Track -3: Mendelian Genetics: Past and the future

For thousands of years there were lot of questions about genetics and people followed different processes to produce hybrids of different plants and animals. But most of their trails failed as the actual mechanism behind it was unknown. Thereafter Mendel was the first to explain the concept of heredity after experimenting on pea plant (Pisum sativum) through his laws. He proposed Law of Segregation where only one allele pass from parent to offspring as the allele of parents gets separated ,Law of independent Assortment where different pairs of allele passes from parents independently, Law of Dominance where some alleles are dominant the remaining are recessive. Based on this, several hypotheses were proposed later.

Currently there are vast advancements in the field of genetics where researches are focusing on the different diseases caused by variations in genes and many institutions are investing in the research. For example, US government, along with NIH funded Human Genome project based on DNA sequencing technologies. Due to the development of new techniques in Bioinformatics there is a huge decrease in the price of genome sequencing, from $100 million to $1000.

The involvement of genetics in heart diseases, cancer and other implications remained “far from clear”. There are possibilities of practicing human cloning, eugenics apart from these genetic advancements.

Track-4: Clinical Genomics

Clinical genomics is the use of genomic sequencing in clinical basis like for diagnosis, treatment of disease caused in patients. It is a new and rapidly changing field. The diseases like cystic fibrosis and sickle cell anaemia, which are caused by a single base pair change to DNA sequencing, these mutations can be corrected by CRISPR/ Cas technology.

Cas technology is based on genome editing which is proposed by Editas Medicine with an investment of about $43million. Researchers adopted this technique as most of the microbes use protein and RNA’s against invading viruses. The technique involves the editing of stretches in DNA and also to edit single base pairs of the human genome. It was also believed to cure untreatable diseases possibly.

Track- 6: Clinical Epigenetics

Clinical epigenetics uses the techniques involved in molecular biology to detect the alterations in DNA methylation or histone modification to diagnose disorders produced by heritable defects in the gene expression. DNA methylation involves in the addition of methyl groups to adenine and guanine bases. DNA is useful for cell development and when methylation occurs on CpG dinucleotide where cytosine precedes guanine suppresses the gene regulation. The nucleosome consists of historians where the tails of histone protrude from nucleosome and therefore they can be modified. The chemical groups attract activating or suppressing complexes to chromatin, which affects its shape, making it more or less available for gene expression. Epigenetic enzyme marketing consists of DNA-modifying, RNA-modifying, Protein is modifying Enzymes which is expected to reach a high rate by 2019. Bisulfite conversion kits; ChIP- seq kits; RNA sequencing kits; whole genome amplification kits are some of the epigenetic kits among which ChIP-seq kits segment had the biggest share in 2014.The market value of epigenetics was $413.24 million in 2014, it is expected to reach a CAGR of 13.64% from 2014 to 2019 and it is estimated to grow $783.17 million by 2019 globally.

Track-10: Clinical Metabolics and Lipidomics

Lipids are the major components of biological membranes as well as the metabolites of organisms. Lipids play crucial role in biology. Imbalance in the lipid molecules leads to numerous diseases like atherosclerosis, obesity, diabetes, and Alzheimer's disease. Lipidomics is a system-based study of all lipids, which aims at the analysis of lipids in the biological system. Lipidomics is the main tool for potential biomarker discovery, diagnosis the disease and to understand disease pathology mainly in the fields of neurodegeneration, psychiatry, oncology, metabolic diseases, and infectious diseases. The global biomarkers market was $29.3 billion in 2013 and is expected to grow $53.6 billion in 2018 at a CAGR of 12.8%.

Clinical metabolomics is the major and the most powerful tool to screen metabolites in the biological samples. These provide predictive and prognostic biomarkers which are useful to monitor disease states and to improve therapeutic levels. Discovery of biomarkers to differentiate diseases at molecular levels is a difficult task as the metabolite profile is related to the phenotype of an organism; metabolomics provide a better understanding of systemic diseases. Metabolomics is also practiced in crop breeding, toxicology, plant biotechnology. The market value for metabolomics was $712 million in 2012 and is expected to reach nearly $1.4 billion in 2017 at a CAGR of 14.2% globally.

Track-11: Medical and Developmental Genetics

Right from the zygote to a developed individual every process is regulated by genes. Developmental genetics is concerned with the process in which genes regulate the development. It is the study of cell fate, cell determination and embryonic development. There are many theories proposed and among them differential gene expression is the most accepted one. The ability to produce an organism from cells is called totipotent, unipotent stem cells produce a family of related cells. Pluripotent and multipoint produce only few organs or tissues, but all these cells forms, a cell lineage whose differentiation can be done by a master control gene. Likewise immune cells are produced from bone marrow; B-cells are responsible for antibody production. By Invivo production of B-cells, antibody diversity can be achieved as process follows differential gene expression. The prenatal and newborn genetic testing market were $1.12 billion in 2012 and expected to grow $8.37 billion in 2019 at a CAGR of 26.9% from 2013 to 2019 globally.

Track-14:Genetic Linkage Analysis

Genetic linkage analysis is a statistical method that is used to associate functionality of genes to their location on chromosomes. Neighboring genes on the chromosome have a tendency to stick together when passed on to offsprings. Therefore, if some disease is often passed to offsprings along with specific marker-genes , then it can be concluded that the gene(s) which are responsible for the disease are located close on the chromosome to these markers.

Track-16: Genetic Syndromes and Related Disorders

Genetic disorder is a genetic problem which is associated with the abnormalities in the genome, it may or may not be heritable. For example, cancer can be caused by some inherited genes or by new mutations or it may be environmental cause in some patients. There are many genetic disorders among them Single-gene disorder is the one which is the resultant of a single mutated gene. It includes diseases like Cystic fibrosis, Sickle-cell-anemia, Polycystic kidney disease, Hemophilia-A, Albinism. Multifactorial diseases include diabetes and heart diseases. Most of the genetic disorders can be identified at birth or in childhood like Huntington’s disease. Treatment for these genetic disorders is still a battle where around 1800 clinical trials have been completed. Presently Gene therapy is followed in which a new gene is introduced to a patient which is very complicated. The market value of products to treat genetic disorders was $12.8 billion in 2009 and $17.3 in 2014 globally.

The market value for cancer treatment was about $51.2 billion in 2014 and is expected to reach $66.4 billion by 2019, with a CAGR of 5.4% from 2014 to 2019 globally.The autism spectrum disorders (ASD) market was about $346.2 million in 2013 and $360.9 million in 2014.

Track-17Genetics Market:

While the evidence base is still growing, genetic services industry leaders strongly believe that emerging testing capabilities will have significant clinical impact in the future. Many expressed opinions that genetic services will make significant contributions to prediction, detection, and care selection, leading to better quality care and increased affordability. Available genetic tests and genomic applications, can be categorized according to their clinical method of use across prediction, detection, and care selection. The prenatal and newborn genetic testing market were $1.12 billion in 2012 and expected to grow $8.37 billion in 2019 at a CAGR of 26.9% from 2013 to 2019 globally.

Track-18: Genetic Testing for Inherited Cardiac Disease

Over the past 2 decades, investigators in the field of cardiac genetics have evolved a complex understanding of the pathophysiological basis of inherited cardiac diseases, which predispose individuals to sudden cardiac death. In this Review, we describe the current status of gene discovery and the associations between phenotype and genotype in the cardiac channelopathies and cardiomyopathies. The various indications for genetic testing and its utility in the clinic are assessed in relation to diagnosis, cascade testing, guiding management, and prognosis. Some common problems exist across all phenotypes: the variable penetrance and expressivity of genetic disease, and the difficulty of assessing the functional and clinical effects of novel mutations. These issues will be of particular importance as the next-generation sequencing technologies are used by genetics laboratories to provide results from large panels of genes. The accurate interpretation of these results will be the main challenge for the future.

Scope and Importance

The International Conference on Clinical and Molecular Genetics Meeting provides genetics professionals with the opportunity to learn how genetics and genomics are being integrated into medical or clinical practice. Clinical Genetics is the medical specialty which provides a diagnostic service and "genetic counselling" for individuals or families with, or at risk of, conditions which may have a genetic basis. Genetic disorders can affect any body system and any age group. The aim of Genetic Services is to help those affected by, or at risk of, a genetic disorder to live and reproduce as normally as possible.

The International Conference on Clinical and Molecular Genetics is attended by professionals in medical and clinical genetics and genomics  who are providing comprehensive diagnostic, management and genetic counseling services for patients with, or at risk for, genetically influenced health problems; laboratory directors and technicians providing genetic testing; researchers involved in the discovery of genetic disorders and treatments; and all other health care and public health professionals with an interest in the rapidly evolving field of medical genetics. The meeting also draws professionals from multiple disciplines seeking ways to apply the new developments in genetics and genomics integrate these concepts and tools into their practices as they screen patients for genetic disorders, ensure access to genetic counseling and testing, deliver ongoing medical and nutritional management or refer patients to specialists.

Specialist genetic services have developed in the UK largely as regional centers of expertise. All support the network of Regional Genetics Centers and the need for close functional interaction between centers and between elements of the service within an individual center. Specialist genetic services can be distinguished from other medical services by the fact that they deal with families, often over several generations, and that they can provide genetic expertise for any age group affected by, or at risk of, disorders in anybody system.

WHY ATTEND

Genetics and genomics are changing how we practice medicine and will increasingly guide day-to-day healthcare decisions. There has never been a more exciting and extraordinary time for professionals in the field of medical genetics and genomics.

Target Audience

Medical and clinical geneticists, genetic counselors, pediatric, obstetric, and maternal fetal specialists. Medical practitioners who provide services for patients with, or at risk for, genetically influenced health problems.
