What past participants say about the conference

“An incredibly interesting and well-organised event, not only from the scientific side but also on the technical part. As expected from other editions of the meeting, the science was amazing and very variegated. Kudos for the organisation and for the unusually high number of young speakers. – Irene Stefanini, University of Turin, Italy

“One of my favourite meetings with a real community feeling. I’ve started collaborations and made great friends here.” – Rike Stelkens, Population Genetics, Stockholm University, Sweden

“A great conference and academic environment – networking opportunities are limitless.” – Jose Antonio Urban Aragon, International Laboratory for Human Genome Research, National Autonomous University of Mexico (LIIGH-UNAM), Mexico

EMBL does not work with any external providers on sponsorship acquisition.
