This conference will welcome over 18 speakers to Boston for three days of lectures, networking opportunities, and poster sessions.
Merck Boston Auditorium, Boston, US
18-20 April, 2017
This meeting will bring together leading researchers in genomics and classical mechanistic biology, in an effort to decode the information contained in mutation signatures, genome rearrangements, and alterations of karyotype in human disease. The program will highlight the latest developments in this exciting field. This meeting is co-sponsored by the Department of Cell Biology at Harvard Medical School, and we hope that it will also foster new collaborations between groups working in this research area. This meeting will select short talks from submitted abstracts.
