Kidney Week

Basic/Clinical Science Session

Linking Genotype to Phenotype in the Age of Big Data

November 07, 2019 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: 147, Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Session Description

There has been an unprecedented growth in the ability to obtain genotypic information from patients with kidney diseases. Innovative approaches allow matching the complexity of the genome with the complexity of clinical, histological, and molecular data sets with the goal of linking genetic risk with disease mechanism.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Describe the complexities and challenges of current genotyping strategies
  • Identify the opportunities that genetics provides for mechanistic disease insight

Learning Pathway(s)

  • Genetic Diseases of the Kidneys
  • Glomerular Diseases
