Run in partnership with the TATAA Biocenter and Phile Korea, the event will focus on providing researchers with an in depth learning opportunity through a two track, two day conference programme full of international experts in the field. A selection of training courses will also be available, providing an opportunity to learn the practical applications of the tools and technologies being discussed throughout the conference.

The event will be staged at the Convention Center (DCC) in Daejeon, the center of biotechnology within Korea, and will feature an extensive exhibition of instrument suppliers showcasing the latest tools and technologies available to genomics researchers.

Conference tracks:

Advances in qPCR & Next-Gen Sequencing
Our speakers will discuss the associated enhanced capabilities and improved cost-effectiveness that will further increase the accuracy, efficiency and accessibility of these well-defined techniques.

RNAi, miRNA and Epigenetics
These relatively new areas of research are attracting immense interest from all members of the scientific community.  With such vast potential for these regulators of gene expression, Professor Tsuyoshi and Dr Nehrbass will be focusing on the mechanisms of regulation, developments of imprinting and screening, and the prospective delivery of therapeutics.
