Genetics and Genomics 2017

The 5th Annual Genetics and Genomics virtual conference is now On-Demand! This event covers the most recent and exciting advances in genetics research. LabRoots invites research scientists, post docs, principal investigators, lab directors and other genetics professionals to learn about new discoveries and discuss their own findings with like-minded colleagues and experts in the field.

As the foundation of life, Genetics provides a base for other sciences to grow from. As we learn more about genetics and genomics applications, further knowledge can be integrated into diagnosis and treatment of disease and learning more about the complexities of human biology.

The topics discussed in this years Genetics and Genomics event includeed:

  • Gene Therapy
  • Gene Modifiers and Disease Progression
  • Single Cell Genomics
  • Liquid Biopsies and Exosome
  • Precision Medicine

Our virtual conference 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.

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.

Continuing Education:
By participating in this virtual event and watching webcast presentations, you can earn Free CEU, PACE, and/or CME credits. To earn educational credits, you must view an entire presentation. Following the presentation you must click on the educational credit link provided for that particular speaker and follow the required process. Once you have completed the process, you will receive a certificate for the educational credit. The American Board of Genetic Counseling, certifies genetic counselors and accredits genetic counseling training programs. The National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) is the professional membership association for the genetic counseling profession.
