This virtual conference is now On Demand and allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. You can participate in exactly those parts which you are interested in and be back at your desk or bench in an instant. Virtual events remove time and place restrictions and ensure that everyone who wants to participate can do so. This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global genetics community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.
Genetics plays a crucial role in the constantly growing and challenging fields of diagnosis and treatment of genetic disorders, infectious diseases and acquired diseases. This conference will focus on "Biology to the Clinic", and will highlight the topics below.
Innovations in Genomic Tools and Technologies
-Omics in Health and Disease
Clinical Utility of the Newest Technologies
Genetics and Genomics conference participants benefit from interacting with field experts and networking with colleagues. Attendees can also “walk” through the virtual exhibit hall to learn about the latest in genetics and genomics tools and assays. Join LabRoots in leading progress toward understanding the genetics behind disease and treatment.
