ISCN standing committee chair
8 February 2021
GenQA’s Dr Ros Hastings will become the Chair of the ISCN (International System for Cytogenomic Nomenclature) Standing Committee later this month.
Jean McGowan-Jordan has been Chair since 2012, and has decided it is time to hand over that responsibility but will stay on the committee as an advisor. Sarah Moore will be the Vice-Chair.
Many GenQA participants submitted changes to ISCN 2016 which were later adopted to the new version of ISCN 2020 (now in press at iscn.karger.com). GenQA will continue to support and help the genomic community through our staff expertise in addition to our EQAs, educational modules and webinars.
