  • Beyond the Genome

    Genome Medicine and Genome Biology are pleased to host the third annual Beyond the Genome conference at Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA from 27 - 29 September 2012.

    The aim of the conference is to discuss next-generation sequencing and other new technologies, informatic tools, and how these are being used to identify common and rare disease-causing mutations in the research laboratory and toward the clinic.

    Themes will include cancer genomics from discovery sequencing to genome guided therapy, epigenomic technologies and applications, and inherited disease beyond the candidate gene approach. There will also be an informatics workshop.
