Thu Feb 22 – Fri Feb 23, 2024 – Lausanne Omics Days 2024

This year, the scope of the Lausanne Genomics Days has broadened since it becomes the Lausanne Omics Days. It is still a 2-days international conference meant to share advances in genomics and their impact on biological research, applied to a wide range of topics(it does involve 5 UNIL departments CIGDBCDBMVDEE, and DMF).

It will take at UNIL / Genopode on February Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd.

The conference offers 4 sessions:

  • Deep learning in Biology and Medicine (Chair: Prof. Sven Bergmann)
  • Variation in genome structure and organization (Chair: Prof. Sebastian Soyk)
  • Metabolomics – Towards understanding biological interaction (Chair: Prof. Philipp Engel)
  • Single cell and spatial transcriptomics (Chair: Prof. Tanja Schwander)

For detailed program and more information, please visit the event webpage

Registration is FREE of charge. Still, it is mandatory for organization purpose, in particular ensuring that there will not be food wasted (coffee breaks, lunch and apero are offered).

HERE is the direct link for registration

Attendance is worth 0.5 ECTS

Best regards
