The AGTA Annual Conference covers all aspects of genomic science, technologies and their applications.

This year’s event will cover a range of topics, including cancer genomics, clinical genomics, epigenetics, the microbiome, new technology, plant genomics, population genetics and transcriptomics.

The AGTA (Australasian Genomic Technologies Association) meeting attracts a diverse range of participants including researchers, service providers, industry representatives and students. The conference offers an important opportunity for computational biologists, bioinformaticians and data visualisation specialists to interact with technologists and biologists.
