Personal Genomes 2021 (28 – 30 Apr 2021)

The conference programme for our virtual Personal Genomes (28-30 April 2021) meeting is now available, and can be viewed here.

This year’s itinerary includes lectures from distinguished keynotes, Joanna Mountain (23andMe, USA), and Michael Snyder (Stanford University School of Medicine, USA), which compliment a comprehensive list of high-quality speakers you can hear from throughout the meeting.

We’d also like to remind you that the abstract deadline for this year’s conference is approaching. It is an excellent opportunity to share your research with an online network of peers. 

We welcome your research on the following topics:

  • Promoting diverse reference genomes
  • Clinical implementation and interpretation
  • Infrastructure and innovation
  • Data sharing: trust and governance
  • Personal genomics and pandemics

If your abstract is selected for a poster presentation you will be given the chance to upload a short video describing your research.
