Rendez-vous Génome Québec

Rendez-Vous Génome Québec 2016
December 8th 2016

The Future of "omics" Applications

"Omics" technologies have opened the doors to a wide range of fields of research and applications. This Rendez-vous is intended for scientists interested in technologies and applications related to high-throughput "omics" technologies.

The Rendez-vous Génome Québec 2016 will focus on researchers leading initiatives using next-generation "omics" technologies in very diverse areas of research.

Topics covered will include: personalized health, environmental genomics, agri-food and aquaculture genomics.

Keynote speakers

Dr. Sally Aitken, PhD Dr. Tim Reddy, PhD
University of British Columbia Vancouver, BC, CANADA Duke University North Carolina, USA
"Healthy trees for new climates: How can genomics help?" "Regulatory mechanisms of human disease"
