Genetics and Genomics 2018

Our 6th Annual Genetics and Genomics Virtual Conference is now available On Demand!

As the foundation of life, genetics provides a base for other sciences to grow from. This free on-demand event will cover the most recent and exciting advances in genetics research.

Participants of the Genetics 2018 event will learn from renowned experts like Dr. Sigrid Reinsch from NASA's GeneLab Project, Dr. Christopher Amos from Dartmouth Geisel School of Medicine, Dr. Cynthia Morton from Harvard Medical School, Dr. Katherine Blizinsky from NIH and Dr. Fritz Sedlazeck from Baylor College of Medicine.

Topics Will Included:

  • Genome Editing
  • Metagenomics
  • Genomic Medicine
  • Structural Variation and Genetic Diversity


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. 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!

Our on-demand 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. 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.

Produced on a new, more robust platform, you can watch, learn and connect during this conference on mobile devices easier than ever before. Equipped with gamification and point system, you can now move around the entire event earning points for a chance to win one of LabRoots most popular shirts


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.
