The first Symposium on Microgenomics to be held 15-16 May 2014, in Paris

There’s still time to submit abstracts and join the burgeoning community of microgenomics!

Today, one of the biggest challenges for biologists is the ability to understand and analyse the genome expressed in a given cell type in its tissue environment. What are the most recent techniques for performing molecular analyses on ever-smaller and purer cell populations? This is what will bring together 250 scientists from all over the world, working in all areas covered by microgenomics, for a two-day event in Paris in May 2014.

The aim of this first congress of its kind is to bring together internationally renowned experts in the field and offer an overview of the present knowledge for obtaining high quality molecules and of future developments in "-omic" tools (DNA, RNA and protein) for genome analysis at the cellular level.

The symposium on Microgenomics will be held on 15-16 May 2014, at the Pierre and Marie Curie University, in the heart of the city of Paris.

 

Deadline for abstract submission: 28 February 2014!

Are you performing precise molecular analyses thanks to the following techniques?

  • flow cytometry
  • laser-capture microdissection
  • DEP array, NGS, digital PCR
  • WGA, LC-MS/MS, RPMA...

 

Join the experts in Paris, submit your abstract and share your work and results!

Register to attend the Symposium on Microgenomics and attend state-of-the-art presentations along a day and a half in the city of light.
