Next Generation Genomics 2018 Symposium

Next Generation Genomics 2018 Symposium

University of Helsinki

The Next Generation Genomics Symposium takes place in Helsinki on October 23-24, 2018 targeting researchers in the field including PhD students and postdocs. The meeting is fifth in a series of successful symposia organized at two year intervals.

The symposium is part of a larger PhD course package organized by the Integrative Life Science (ILS) doctoral program. The PhD course package comprises a Pre-symposium Journal Club, an International Scientific Symposium, and three related Workshops where students have a chance to learn hands-on methods in genomics. The workshops are instructed by experts in the field. The course will be held in the University of Helsinki in October - November, 2018. The meeting will focus on state-of-the-art sequencing technologies and their applications.
