Meeting organisers can submit meetings free of charge for inclusion into the listing.
Its 3 day event which includes Keynote sessions, featured speakers, students, companies. We encourage delegates to use this conference as a meeting place to assemble their academic interest-groups for global deliberations.
Speakers: Christa Schleper, Gordon Brown, Ian Baldwin, Jon Clardy, Michael Meyer-Herman, Manja Marz, Oliver Kurzai, Sarah O´Connor and Susan Trumbore
The great international interest in the previous qPCR dPCR & NGS Events from 2004 till 2015 with a constant average audience of more than 500 participants from all over the world motivates repeating the success next year in April 2017. Hence the date for the 8th international Gene Quantification Event is from 3rd to 7th April 2017. We broaden our focus in genomics applications from quantitative RT-PCR, over digital PCR to the latest Next Generation Sequencing technologies and the connected integrative Big Data Analysis. As done in previous years, we offer a three day scientific symposium with around 70 talks in two lecture halls. Parallel to the scientific symposium an Industrial Exhibition will take place where around 35-40 international companies will present their newest qPCR, dPCR and NGS services, hardware and technologies. The symposium will be followed by various 2-day PCR & NGS related Workshops taking place April 6th and 7th powered by leaders in the field.
Event location is the central lecture hall complex and the foyer at TUM School of Life Sciences (Technical University of Munich) in Freising Weihenstephan, Germany (https://goo.gl/maps/6d3BNCyUkKk) The TUM and the Biotech region around Munich are part of the largest Biotech cluster in Europe (BioM), representing more than 250 companies and academic institutions, located close to the Munich airport (MUC) directly in the heart of Bavaria.
Topics for debate will include all aspects of CRISPR, from the different techniques of delivering Cas9 to uncovering how to control the repair pathway. The summit will also be assessing the limitation of CRISPR technique and discover what key developments have allowed progress in understanding the unknown. Sessions on screening and bioinformatics will also be included to see how these tools have helped predict the outcome of the CRISPR/Cas9 system.
Whether you are already underway with using CRISPR in your research, or are considering implementing the technology, this conference is where you need to be in 2017!
European Cancer Genomics research is particularly strong in the Heidelberg area, with three International Cancer Genome Consortium (www.icgc.org) projects being currently pursued with significant participation from Heidelberg institutions, including EMBL. As in our 2015 meeting, a large number of renowned speakers will be invited, with a strong representation of overseas speakers. The atmosphere at the conference will make this an exceptional event with cutting edge science, extensive scientific discussions and ample possibilities for meetings between and after sessions to facilitate in-depth discussions and new collaborations.
