Abstract: Cardiovascular death is the main cause of mortality in developed countries. Current diagnosis and predictive tools are still insufficient due to low cost-accuracy ratios. The electrocardiogram (ECG) is a widely available and cheap tool that reflects the electrical activity of the heart. In this talk, I will give an introduction to the ECG, describe how it can be used to non-invasively quantify cardiovascular risk, and how genetic analyses can unravel key biological mechanisms reflected on the ECG.
