This year the Forum is held in partnership between the Oxford Genomics Centre and Biotexcel as a new platform to bring together genomic researchers from diverse areas to discuss the latest advances, technologies, tools and directions in Genomics. This new platform will evolve into a full 2-day event in 2017 so join us this year and be part of the community as we take the popular forum to a new level.
The scientific theme of the forum will cover the following areas:
Technological advancement in Single Cell
Data analysis and handling
The Forum will consist of 3 keynote talks given by opinion leaders who will then chair sessions of short talks by key figures in those areas. There will also be plenty of opportunities for delegates to brainstorm ideas and discuss topics that are making the genomic headlines.
The genome editing market represents a rapidly evolving area of pharmaceutical research since the discovery of the CRISPR/Cas systems that have revolutionised biological research. Significant advancements have been made in the fields of improving genome editing tools & technologies, gene delivery systems and utilising genome editing for therapeutic applications. Genomics research is experiencing an increased funding and thanks to the technological advancements the genome editing market is expected to grow rapidly. Experts have also highlighted that the global market for genome editing is expected to reach over $2.0 billion by 2020.
