Welcome to ISMGU (International Symposium and Workshop Medical Genetic Update) 2024

Reports of congenital anomalies in newborns in Indonesia are increasing. The causes of these anomalies should be investigated for prevention. This condition is often overlooked by health workers due to ignorance and inadequate of examination and diagnosis facilities in accordance with scientific development. The discovery of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) in 2006 enables scientists to establish the diagnosis especially in rare disease and cancer.

Universitas YARSI is a renowned private university in Jakarta. YARSI has employed networks of international and national lecturers, won competitive grants in genomic and biomedical sciences. YARSI Genomic Facility has run two NextGen Sequencing platforms (both short and longreads supported by Illumina and Oxford Nanopore, respectively) to support training of graduate students in Genetic Counseling Master Program of Biomedical Sciences.

In connection with the development of genomic and genomic diagnosis facilities, Universitas YARSI will hold The 1st International Symposium and Workshop “Medical Genetics Update: From Genomic to Clinic” on May 16-18, 2024 in Jakarta, Indonesia in collaboration with several human genetics experts from abroad (Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Egypt and Tunisia). This activity is a forum for researchers to present the latest research results, to discuss, to improve participants’ knowledge and skills in the health sector, especially in the fields of genetics at the cellular stage, molecular biology, genomics, clinical genetics, cancer, metabolic diseases and infectious diseases.
