GenoFest | Friday, October 4, 2019


Overview

GenoFest is the UMGC’s annual fall Open House, where we and our technology partners present seminars updating attendees on emerging trends in genomics technologies, future plans for our core facility, and application solutions for UMN researchers. GenoFest also features a vendor fair, where commercial genomics instrumentation and reagent providers are available to answers question about their products.

This fall, we will highlight the emerging discipline of spatial genomics:

 

Morning program: Spatial transcriptomics overview and technology comparison to help determine which platform should be available for UMN research.

Afternoon program: Updates in genomics applications and technologies for the wider biology field.

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
