The Modellvorhaben Genomsequenzierung just started and the first genomes are piling up. Understanding variant penetrance in the era of large-scale federated sequencing is key in unlocking new disease associations. The agenda will feature talks from all NGS competence centers and workshops for all service providers (Leistungserbringer des MVGenomSeq).
