The fields of genetics and genomics, the study of our genetic makeup and the interplay of genes with one another and the environment, is rapidly evolving. Keeping up with developments can be daunting.

LabRoots, the premier producer of interactive virtual events for life sciences and clinical diagnostics professionals, will soon host its annual conference spotlighting the recent advances in Genetics & Genomics.

At BioConference Live Genetics and Genomics 2015, a two-day event presented entirely online and free, attendees need not leave their desk or home to partake in a range of concise presentations from world-renowned experts. Interactive live-streaming video sessions include question-and-answer sessions, and participants can earn complementary CME, CE, and CEU continuing education credits.
