Mouse Molecular Genetics
18-21 September 2013
Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge, UK
Abstract and Bursary deadline: 19 July | Registration deadline: 7 August
We are pleased to announce that the 26th annual Mouse Molecular Genetics meeting will be held at the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, from 18 to 21 September 2013.
This meeting is a leading forum for researchers who apply genetics and genomics techniques to address fundamental issues in mammalian biology, including stem cell biology, development, epigenetics and models of human disease.
The meeting invites leaders in these areas to present unpublished research findings, encourages junior investigators to participate in oral and poster presentations and provides a stimulating environment for the exchange of ideas. The programme will showcase the latest technical developments in genetics and engineering of the mouse genome and this year will also feature a new session devoted to cancer. We welcome abstracts from areas relevant to mammalian molecular genetics, several oral presentations be selected from submitted abstracts.
