The contribution of genetic factors to development of asthma and COPD is very complex and interactions between different genes, or between genes and the environment, complicate inferences even further. The number of studies incorporating gene-environment interactions is increasing and it becomes more and more clear that genetics do not explain all the inheritance associated with asthma and COPD and that environmental exposures such as cigarette smoking and air pollution can affect the susceptibility and severity of airways disease.

From epidemiologists to mathematicians and from clinicians to environmental experts, this event gathered experts from around the world who explored the following three topics in-depth:

  • Genes, epigenetics and system genetics
  • Novel methods of exposure assessment
  • Statistics, Bioinformatics And Quantitative (Epi)Genetics
