Newest and Latest Findings in Genetics, Right Here.


Genetics and Genomics 2016 is scheduled for May 11th and 12th this year. We are excited to bring in some of the world’s top experts to present the latest research! This year, the theme of the conference is “Biology to the Clinic,” focusing on innovative new tools and technologies in genomics and how these and the subsequent findings can translate to the clinic.

You can participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you, and join 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.
