ARVO meeting



May 1–5, 2011 Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA

Advances in genome sciences and related technologies are revolutionizing biology and medicine. We are now able to identify genetic variations associated with vision diseases. Bioinformatics tools are helping us decipher the complexities of gene regulation, and we are learning more about how human cells and the microbiome interact.
Eye and vision researchers will gather at the 2011 Annual Meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology to explore how genome technology is leading to new understandings of vision health, disease and treatment.
