International Symposium on Frontiers of Genetics and Genomics(时间:2015年12月6-8日)

The International Symposium on Frontiers of Genetics and Genomics will be held on December 6-8, 2015 in Shenzhen, China.  


This symposium is jointly organized by the Editorial Office of Journal of Genetics and Genomics, Hereditas (Beijing), Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Genetics Society of China, co-organized by the Agricultural Genomics Institute at Shenzhen China Academy of Agricultural Sciences.  


Journal of Genetics and Genomics (JGG) is a peer-reviewed international journal in the field of genetics and genomics. Research in this field has been progressing rapidly. This symposium aims to highlight the emerging frontiers of genetics and genomics covering humans, animals, plants and microbes. Over 30 leading scientists from different countries will share their cutting-edge discoveries in this symposium. We sincerely hope this symposium will provide an international platform for scientists to exchange new ideas, discuss new advances and facilitate collaborations.
