The 28th International Mammalian Genome Conference

The meeting will begin with the Bioinformatics Workshop that was hugely popular at the last conference and will be led by investigators developing tools for large-scale genomics analysis. The Bioinformatics Workshop will be followed by a Student Satellite Symposium that offers the opportunity for budding scientists to compete for awards and presentation slots in the main meeting. These events will be held at the Jackson Laboratory. The main conference will be held at the Bar Harbor Club and will once again include the popular mentoring lunch where those looking for career advice can interact with established scientists.

The main conference will feature sessions on:

• Large-scale resources
• Advances in genome manipulation
• Stem cells and Development
• Human disease models
• Comparative genomics, Population genetics & Evolution
• Aging and Adult-onset disease modeling
+ show speakers and program
