ICG-8 – The 8th International Conference on Genomics October 30-November 1, 2013

Vanke International Conference Center, Shenzhen, China


It's been eight years since the first ICG conference, now ICG has become one of the leading congregations to feature the latest developments in genome sciences. It successfully delivers numerous updates on on-going research projects. These projects apply the current state-of-the-art sequencing and analysis technologies to the study of human diseases and strengthen the global agriculture development.

Why you should attend ICG-8:

● Share ground-breaking research in basic and applied genomics and to advance new approaches to sequencing and bioinformatics. 

● Interact directly with top genomics luminaries and key industry leaders. 
● Attract new talent and strengthen partnerships. 
● Access to the private tours of BGI laboratory located at the Shenzhen Headquarters.
