The Future of "omics" Applications

"Omics" technologies have opened the doors to a wide range of fields of research and applications. This Rendez-Vous is intended for scientists interested in technologies and applications related to high-throughput "omics" technologies.

The Rendez-Vous Génome Québec 2014 will focus on researchers leading initiatives using next-generation "omics" technologies in very diverse areas of research.

Topics covered will include:

  • human diseases
  • proteomics
  • microbial genomics
  • synthetic biology
  • big data bioinformatics

Keynote speaker: Dr. John Yates
Professor of Chemical physiology
