The genomic era is now a reality. There is much potential for genomics to solve many of the major challenges we face today. In this workshop, we provide intensive introduction to what you need to know about genomics. Participants will learn important concepts, terminology, state-of-the-art technologies and applications of genomics. Technical information will be left aside so that participants can focus and get up to speed quickly on genomics without all the fluff.

Who should attend 

This workshop is for anyone who is new to the area or want to quickly understand more about genomics and related technologies, including those who are exploring the potential of venturing into the field of genomics.
