Complex Trait Consortium Meeting at Oxford 1-3 July 2003

Welcome to the Home Page for the 2003 meeting of Complex Trait Consortium at Oxford , 1-3 July.

  • The CTC is an international group of researchers working to identify the genetic variants that underly complex traits, particularly of quantitative trait loci (QTL), in model organisms such as rodents. The previous CTC meeting in Memphis, TN attracted over 100 attendees; we expect similar interest for this meeting.
  • Particular foci of the meeting will be:
    1. to finalise ongoing discussions for the planning, production and dissemination of mouse Recombinant Inbred Lines (RIL), which are genetic resources for mapping complex traits extremely economically.
    2. to discuss the use of the draft mouse genome sequence for cloning QTL.
    3. the construction of haplotype maps for inbred mouse strains.
  • The Venue of the meeting is the Gulbenkian Theatre in the St Cross Building (University Law School), 10 minutes walk from the centre of Oxford.
  • Accommodation is available at St Catherine's College (5 mins walk from the Gulbenkian). We have reserved 70 rooms
  • Note for travellers from Heathrow and Gatwick airports: The simplest and cheapest way to get to Oxford is by bus - see here for more details.
  • Thanks to all those who have sent in their abstracts. Please keep them coming. If you want to present a poster or talk but don't have the title and abstract ready please email Richard Mott to let him know - we will do our best to help.
