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 workshop as well as the following co-located conferences:

• Workshop: Bioinformatics & Data Management Strategies (June 19) 

• 3rd Next-Generation Sequencing Conference (June 20-21) 

• 4th RNAi Research & Therapeutics Conference (June 20-21)

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 of excecutives from top pharma and various biotech/pharmaceutical companies, explore potential collaborations, and learn about relevant issues and deals that will affect the industry.


Don’t miss out on this opportunity – mark your calendars and we hope to see you at the Nucleic Acid Summit in San Francisco!

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.

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.
