Dear Colleague,

The 8th Genomics & Big Data Summit to be held on June 7-8, 2018 in San Diego, CA, has three focus areas to discuss the developments and challenges in the popular omics areas listed below. Representatives from big pharma, academic institutions, and government research labs will present data on advances in new technology and case studies on therapeutic targets, molecular diagnostics, and integration of complex data.

We encourage you to sign up for a summit pass in order to get the most comprehensive look at research, technology, and application in the field of omics. In addition to scientific presentations, dedicated networking sessions will allow you to form connections with numerous representatives from their respective institutions. Please join us for the opportunity to listen to recent updates and share ideas with colleagues.
