Functional Genomics - Next Generation Applications and Technologies (successor of Status Seminar Chip Technologies)

3 - 4 February 2011 DECHEMA-Haus

Invitation for exhibition and participation


The field of Functional Genomics is growing and expanding continuously. This is due to the fact that the basic information in terms of comprehensive molecular data sets is or becomes available, such as genomic, epigenetic expression and interaction information at all molecular levels. In addition, more and more techniques arise, which permit similarly global analyses also at the level of individual living organisms, currently still with an emphasis on cell culture but moving more and more toward studies of model organisms and human tissues. Understanding the regulative processes that govern cellular life will translate relatively quickly into biomedical and pharmacological applications, biotechnical and biosynthetic developments and metagenetic - in other words ecological - consequences.

The seminar "Functional Genomics - Next Generation Applications & Technologies" (successor of Status Seminar Chip Technologies) will scrutinise and highlight applications and technologies in functional genomics. Scientific lectures and poster presentations as well as exhibiting companies will demonstrate the enormous potential of today's technology and provide a glance at what the future may hold.
