Welcome to

Bioinformatics & Genomic Medicine 2015

- July 2015, HoChiMinh City

News: Summer School "An Introduction to Bioinformatics Algorithms" (July 25-28)

Flyer information

The conference is not only to connect scientists but also to promote cooperate in future. Genomic Medicine is an interdiscipline from disease genomics, disease epigenomics, pathogen and microbiome genomics, immunogenomics, translational genomics, pharmacogenomics and persionalized medicine, proteomics and metabolomics. The GM 2015 offers a real opportunity to bring together scientists of different disciplines, discuss new issues, tackle complex problems and find advance solutions breeding new trends in Genomic Medicine.

Genomic Medicine Conference is devoted to the latest advances in the use of omics data in medical practice.
Topics of interest include but not limited to:

Next Generation Sequencing Technology and Platform

Genome Assembly, Functional and Comparative Genomics, Metagenomics

Pharmacogenomics , Pharmacogenetics, Personalized Medicine

Computer-aided Drug Development and Molecular Modeling

Cancer genomics

Pre-Clinical to Clinical Research
