ARK-Genomics conference 2008: 3rd International Symposiumon Animal Functional Genomics (ISAFG)

ARK-Genomics conference 2008: 3rd International Symposium on Animal Functional Genomics (ISAFG)

April 7th – 9th 2008

Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC), Morrison Street, Edinburgh, UK

Official Conference Website:
(updated information about agenda, registration, abstract submission, accommodation and venue)

Registration and Abstract Submission will open on Friday, October 12th 2007
Reduced rates for PhD and first year post docs available.
Limited number of travel bursaries for young researchers available.

The 3rd International Symposium on Animal Functional Genomics (ISAFG) will present opportunities to take stock of the current European and International position in animal functional genomics, identifying areas for collaborations and the development of new resources.

Increased exposure through the bringing together of two important conference series: 
1st European Farm Animal Functional Genomics Conference (ARK-Genomics) and
2nd International Symposium on Animal Functional Genomics (Michigan State University)

The conference will be structured around the following themes:
“Genetics and QTLs”

“Bioinformatics and Data Mining”

“Animal Health”

“Functional Genomics meets Physiology”

“Animal Genomics in Industry”


“Systems Biology”

The ISAFG event will run in parallel with the launch of the EBRC, a new world class animal bioscience centre.
The keynote lectures by Professor John Quackenbush and Professor Michel Georges will highlight functional genomics and its impact on Systems Biology.

Additionally there will be 2 open sessions, a poster session with cheese &wine as well as a conference dinner.
As before, there will be plenty of opportunities for networking.
