Genetics and Genomics

The LabRoots 4th Annual Genetics and Genomics free virtual conference was a wonderful event for research scientists, post docs, principal investigators, lab directors and other genetics professionals to learn about recent advances in genetics research. This year's conference highlighted some fabulous presentations from Robert Green, Amalio Telenti, David Bentley, Alexander Wait Zaranek and many more.

Watch this video to learn about some of the featured speakers.

This virtual conference is now On Demand and allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. You can participate in exactly those parts which you are interested in and be back at your desk or bench in an instant. Virtual events remove time and place restrictions and ensure that everyone who wants to participate can do so. This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global genetics community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.

Genetics plays a crucial role in the constantly growing and challenging fields of diagnosis and treatment of genetic disorders, infectious diseases and acquired diseases. This conference will focus on "Biology to the Clinic", and will highlight the topics below.

Innovations in Genomic Tools and Technologies

Genome Editing; Synthetic Biology; Methods and Technologies for Multi-Center Genetics Platforms and Research; and Moving Beyond GWAS with Functional Approaches


-Omics in Health and Disease

Single Cell Genomics; Metabolism, Mitochondria and Microbiomes; and Systems Approach to -Omics


Clinical Utility of the Newest Technologies

Radiomics/Radiogenomics; Clinical Quality Variant Annotation and Databasing; Reimbursement Issues in Clinical Molecular Diagnostics; Data Knowledge and Integration to Medicine; and Methods for Network Inference

 

Genomics in the Clinic
From Tumor Mutation Profile to Clinical Trials; Nucleic Acid Therapeutics; and Precision Medicine (including Noninvasive Pre-Symptomatic Disease Detection; Individualized Vaccines; Genotype-Phenotype Warehousing: Technologies for Large-Scale Analyses; Pediatric Genetics and Genomics; and Liquid Biopsy, Exosomes, Circulating DNA and Tumor Cells)


Genetics and Genomics conference participants benefit from interacting with field experts and networking with colleagues. Attendees can also “walk” through the virtual exhibit hall to learn about the latest in genetics and genomics tools and assays. Join LabRoots in leading progress toward understanding the genetics behind disease and treatment.

Continuing Education
By participating in this virtual event and watching webcast presentations, you can earn Free CEU, CE, and/or CME credits. To earn educational credits, you must view an entire presentation. Following the presentation you must click on the educational credit link provided for that particular speaker and follow the required process. Once you have completed the process, you will receive a certificate for the educational credit. The American Board of Genetic Counseling, certifies genetic counselors and accredits genetic counseling training programs. The National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) is the professional membership association for the genetic counseling profession.
