Home Information Seminars

The field of genomics is rapidly advancing and new technologies and techniques are being introduced all the time. Trying to keep on top of all these new advancements can be difficult.

The PMGC is preparing a series of seminars that will allow for discussion of practical issues related to accessing the various genomics services that we offer. We will discuss issues such as experimental design, sample preparation, data analysis and biological interpretation of data. Keep checking back here for a list of our session topics. If you have an idea for a topic that you would like us to discuss please let us know. Email Neil Winegarden at with your ideas. Click talk title to see flyer with more details.
