LabRoots is proud to present the 7th Annual Genetics & Genomics Virtual Event on May 8-9, 2019. The Genetics & Genomics planning committee has carefully planned and selected speakers to discuss and present the newest advances in genome editing and sequencing, genomic stability, and epigenetics.

The theme for this year’s event isComprehensive Genomics from Single Individual to Population Level with the following tracks:

  • Progress in Genome Editing Including Single Base Editing and Application
  • Interpreting Genome Sequence Information from Telomere to Telomere
    • What does GWAS really tell you about targets for drug discovery
  • Chromosomal Instability, Somatic Cell Recombination and Genomic Stability
  • The Epigenome in Health and Disease
  • Polygenic Risk Scores: PheWas and GWAS and Utility of Biobank Information

Don’t miss the opportunity to participate in this groundbreaking conference, which is absolutely free to all participants. Enjoy our Leaderboard, where you can move around the entire event, earning points for a chance to win one of LabRoots most popular t-shirts.

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you.
