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.

Decoding the Genome of the Olive Tree
A team of scientists from three Spanish centers has sequenced, for the first time ever, the complete genome of the olive tree. This work will facilitate genetic improvement for production of olives and olive oil, two key products in the Spanish economy and diet.
Four Newly-Identified Genes Could Improve Rice
A Japanese research team have applied a method used in human genetic analysis to rice and rapidly discovered four new genes that are potentially significant for agriculture. These findings could influence crop breeding and help combat food shortages caused by a growing population.
What Makes a Good Scientist?
It’s the journey, not just the destination that counts as a scientist when conducting research.
Biomarkers That Could Help Give Cancer Patients Better Survival Estimates Discovered
UCLA research may also help scientists suppress dangerous genetic sequences.
Mobile Laboratories Help Track Zika Spread Across Brazil
Researchers from the University of Birmingham are working with health partners in Brazil to combat the spread of Zika virus by deploying a pair of mobile DNA sequencing laboratories on a medical ‘road trip’ through the worst-hit areas of the country.
How “Silent” Genetic Changes Drive Cancer
The researchers found that EXOSC2 expression is enhanced in metastatic tumors because their cells have increased levels of a tRNA called GluUUC.
‘Jumping Gene’ Took Peppered Moths To The Dark Side
Researchers from the University of Liverpool have identified and dated the genetic mutation that gave rise to the black form of the peppered moth, which spread rapidly during Britain’s Industrial Revolution.
