This event is held in partnership with NHS West of Scotland Genetics Service and the University of Glasgow’s Polyomics research facility. In conjunction with the conference there will be a one day workshop on 26th April that will provide Next Generation Sequencing data analysis training to those working in the wetlab who want to be able to analyse the data and understand the data analysis workflows.

The conference will look at the latest developments in the use of Next Generation Sequencing tools and technologies to understand human disease. The scientific theme aims to bridge the gap between Clinical Genetics and University Genomic research.

The programme includes:

  • Keynote talks from Dame Prof Janet Thornton and Sir Prof John Burn
  • Poster session for young researchers
  • Panel Debate
  • Networking Discussions

Thanks to the kind hospitality of Glasgow City Council we will be able to offer a Complimentary Drinks Reception in the historical settings of Glasgow City Chambers to all attendees.

An evening networking 3-course dinner at Citation Tavern & Restaurant will allow participants to socialise in a relaxed atmosphere.

There are discounts available for local students and academic staff through Glasgow City of Science. To find out more, please contact the organisers and mention this article.
