Mond Feb 5-Tues Feb 6, 2018 – Lausanne Genomics Days 2018

Lausanne Genomics Days

is an annual event sponsored by the University of Lausanne and the Conférence Universitaire de Suisse Occidentale (CUSO). This 2-day event will bring to Lausanne investigators from Europe and the United States to present and discuss the newest developments in genomics and genomic technologies and their impact on biological research.
