Our specific goals are to increase the visibility of complex traits in contemporary biomedical research through:

1)Improved awareness and appreciation for the natural variation that exists within species and is responsible for significant phenotypic variation.
2)Recognition by the broader community of scientists that the vast majority of human phenotypes have complex multigenic components whose contributions need to be understood to obtain comprehensive understanding of relevant human phenotypes.
3)Acceptance that the environment, through complex interactions with genetic variation, is a critical determinant of phenotypic diversity.
4)Development of community-wide resources that enable efficient experimental dissection of the causes of phenotypic diversity.

Postdoctoral and graduate students are encouraged to attend, and funds will be available to encourage students as well as women and under-represented minorities to participate.
