One of the biggest advantages of attending conferences is the ability to network with other’s in your field, especially speakers. BioConference Live Genetics and Genomics offers this on an even greater scale. The largest producer of online-only conferences focused on life sciences and clinical diagnostics, has announced their Annual Genetics and Genomics Virtual Conference will take place August 20-12, 2014. The one-of-a-kind global web-based conference will be conducted through live video webcasts and real-time networking. The benefit of online connections is important to many in the life sciences community who are seeking alternatives to customary (often expensive and time consuming) physical conferences and ways to earn free continuing education credits.

This year, topics for the conference include RNAi, Next-generation sequencing, Cancer research, Sequencing, Genome-wide association studies GWAS, Epigenetics, Mapping, Exomes, Genomic medicine, Human Genome Structural Variation, Pharmacogenetics, DNA/RNA Purification, Mutations, Translational Genomics, Bioinformatics, Genotyping, Pharmacogenomics, Screening, Cloning, Gene Expression, Phenotyping, Transcription, Functional Genomics, Synthetic Biology, Genome Engineering, Immunology, qPCR/Real-Time PCR, PCR, Biomarkers, Stem Cell research, Human Identification, Bioproduction, Molecular Diagnostics and much more.
