Translational Bioinformatics conference
12-13 June 2017
Wellcome Genome Campus

The conference will bring together scientists and entrepreneurs who are interested in translating genomics and bioinformatics research into healthcare tools and services. It will be relevant for researchers, computational biologists and entrepreneurs (from start-ups and established companies) interested in epidemiology, cancer genomics and precision medicine.

Tumour Microenvironment – Basic Science to Novel Therapies (with 3D Model Workshop)
The British Association for Cancer Research
14th - 16th June 2017
Nottingham Conference Centre

This meeting aims to highlight  the latest advances in this field from basic science to clinical development and to provide a workshop forum for researcher to discuss recent developments in 3D cancer modelling.

Further details can be found here.

Avian Genetics and Immunity
Monday 19th June 2017
University of Surrey

Research on Avian Genetics and Immunity (RAGI) has been established to strengthen global partnerships and links between academic researchers, students and the poultry professionals working on the genetics of avian immunity.

The symposium will provide a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas around the single theme of exploiting available opportunities in ultimately dealing emerging and existing infectious avian diseases in poultry production systems and to safeguard food supplies and human health.

Details of available bursaries for students plus abstract deadlines and registration details can be accessed here.

Mendelian randomization in the age of large-scale accessible genomics data
11 - 13 July 2017
Colston Hall, Bristol

All professionals interested in aetiological epidemiology and Mendelian randomization are invited to attend this conference.

The deadline for abstracts is 2 May 2017 and further details can be found here.

Animal Genetics and Diseases
20 - 22 September 2017
Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge

This conference will bring together specialists working on the interface between genomics, genetic engineering and infectious disease with the aims of improving animal and human health and welfare.

This meeting will showcase recent advances in genomics, genome editing, and mathematical techniques to understand disease resistance, pathogen evolution and vaccination success. We will discuss the progress and the lessons learned from combining genomic technologies with advanced quantitative methods to combat epidemics and improve livestock systems. The programme will also present advances of precision medicine in companion animals, translational medicine, as well as the societal issues and challenges surrounding animal welfare and regulation.

The registration deadline for this meeting is 1 August 2017 and full details can be found here.

The Wellcome Genome Campus hosts several meetings each year that may be of interest to Genetics Society members. Please click the links to access a full list of their conferences and courses.

3rd International Conference on Genetic and Protein Engineering
8 - 9 November 2017
Las Vegas, USA

This conference will explore the recent advancements and new methodologies about protein and genetic engineering. Full details can be found here.
