With the title of “Face2Gene Academy: Revue d’un nouvel outil en ligne de formation à la Dysmorphologie basé sur la communauté” this poster written by Prof. Lina Basel-Vanagaite is presented at the Annual French Meeting of Human Genetics in Lyon, France.
The goal of this computer-aided, dysmorphology training tool is to train and test residents and practicing clinicians, specializing in genetics with the skills of dysmorphology.
