We would like to invite you to join us at the Inaugural Nucleic Acid Summit on June 19-21, 2013 in San Francisco, CA. The summit includes a pre-conference workshop as well as the following, co-located conferences:

• Workshop: 
Bioinformatics & Data Management Strategies 
 
3rd Next-Generation Sequencing
 
4th RNAi Research & Therapeutics

Since the advent of next-gen sequencing and the discovery of RNAi, both have changed the way scientists understand the human genome and have become valuable research tools. The Nucleic Acid Summit provides a forum for leaders in the field of sequencing and RNAi discovery to collaborate on the most cutting-edge technology and discuss the latest in therapeutic, diagnostic and clinical applications.

GTC is proud to bring together the leading experts across industry and academia to meet, discuss and exchange advances in technology and research in these two related fields. Come to network with all levels from top pharma and various biotech/pharmaceutical companies, explore potential collaborations, and learn about relevant issues and deals that will affect the industry.
