Beyond the Genome 2014

Beyond the Genome 2014

The fifth Beyond the Genome conference will be hosted by Genome Medicine and Genome Biology at Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA 8-10 October 2014.

This international conference will bring together leading researchers to present the latest insights into cancer genomics, and will cover topics ranging from the biology of cancer genomes to cancer systems and networks to pan-cancer insights.

The conference will go beyond cancer genomics to explore potential therapies and discuss translation of genomes into clinical use. The well-established bioinformatics day is included again and will this year focus on cancer genome informatics and data visualization.

Following on from the success of the first four events, the conference format will once again be designed to promote discussion and interaction between delegates and speakers.
