Microgenomics 2016
The 2nd edition of this unique event will be held once again in Paris, France

2-3 June 2016;  Symposium Venue -- French National Library (La Bibliothèque National de France François Mitterand)

Aims and Topics:  Today, one of the biggest challenges for biologists is the ability to understand and analyze the genome expressed in a given cell type in the tissue environment, which means you can specifically isolate these cells and work on very small quantities of biological material. The aim of the congress is to bring together internationally renowned experts in the field and offer an overview of the present knowledge for obtaining high quality molecules and future developments in "omic" tools (DNA, RNA and protein) for genome analysis and its expression at the cell level. The latest advances in technology in the field will be introduced (flow cytometry, laser capture microdissection, NGS, digital PCR, WGA, LC-MS/MS, RPLA, etc).

The symposium will be divided into four sessions introduced by keynote lecturers, experts in their field :

  1- Sampling methods (flow cytometry, laser capture microdissection, DEP array)
  2- Microgrenomics and DNA
  3- Microgenomics and RNA and small RNA
  4- Microgrenomics and Proteins

Genomic Applications of qPCR, dPCR & NGS
26 May - 27 May 2016
Singapore - The Academia
Location:   Academia's near Singapore General Hospital (SGH)

The comprehensive meeting will focus on new developments in qPCR technology, concentrating on improvements to qPCR design, the acquisition of accurate data, and efficient data analysis. Particular emphasis will also be given to the use of qPCR in Cancer diagnosis and the use of dPCR in the clinic, covering applications such as infectious disease diagnostics and cancer detection.
We will examine the latest developments in sequencing platforms and methods. Focus will be given to RNA sequencing, as well as emerging clinical applications of NGS. Presentations will also highlight the use of bioinformatics and data analysis. In addition to the extensive conference programme, we will also be holding a pre-conference Training Workshop in conjunction with TATAA Biocenter, Sweden.
Attending this meeting will provide you with an excellent opportunity for networking with the world’s leading experts, helping you to find unique solutions and build long term collaborations.

21st  World Congress on Advances in Oncology
19th  International Symposium on Molecular Medicine

October 6-8, 2016
Metropolitan Hotel *****  Athens, Greece

The continued interest and increasing support that our annual Congress on Advances in Oncology and Symposium of Molecular Medicine has gained over the years, motivates us to repeat this success this year in October 2016. Over the last 20 years we have consistently welcomed a broad international audience, which surpassed 500 participants in 2015.
The aim of our conferences is to keep participants up to date with the latest scientific developments in Oncology and Molecular Medicine. Our conferences constitute a unique venue for basic and clinical research for the development of molecular diagnostics and cancer therapeutics.
In parallel to the scientific symposium of 2016, an Industrial Exhibition will take place, at which international companies, leaders in the fields of Oncology and Molecular Medicine, will present their latest technologies and services in clinical diagnostics. If you are interested in joining the exhibition, please contact us at  exhibition@spandidos-publications.com

"Biomolecular Detection and Quantification" --  Call  for Papers
The new online, open access, peer-reviewed journal in molecular methodology applications.

Recent Advances in  MicroGenomics - Molecular Analysis at the Tissue-specific and Single Cell  Level
Second International Symposium on MicroGenomics 2016
Guest Editors:  Claudia Bevilacqua & Michael W. Pfaffl

Biomolecular Detection and Quantification (BDQ) is an open access, peer-reviewed international journal dedicated to championing excellence in molecular study design, measurement, data analysis and reporting. Its focus is on the application of qualitative and quantitative molecular methodologies to all areas of clinical and life sciences. Download the recent BDQ papers on Elsevier Science  Direct.

   BDQ is now listed in PubMed Central (PMC) -- all published papers are free for download!

The journal has two main aims:

  • to provide a forum for discussion and recommendation of guidelines designed to improve the accuracy of molecular measurement, its data analysis and the transparency of its subsequent reporting;
  • to publish molecular biology based studies that adhere to best practice guidelines, both current and future.

We look forward to receiving your paper!

Kind regards,

The Editors
