Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Premier XGen Congress
Applying NeXt GENeration Genomic Technologies for Now Generation Discoveries

March 15-19, 2010 | Hilton San Diego Resort | San Diego, California
http://www.XGenCongress.com

Welcome to the Decade of the Genomics Revolution!  Technological advances
are now enabling faster and cheaper mapping of DNA/RNA allowing genomic
comparisons and accelerating genomic discoveries. Cambridge Healthtech
Institute is proud to launch The X GEN Congress to enable this genomic
revolution. This five conference week-long event will demonstrate the
unique cross fertilization of established genomic technologies with Now-
Generation Sequencing and Quantitative PCR along with exciting applications
of Copy Number Variation and Epigenetics. In addition, you will learn why
data is the driving force that enables discovery at Sequencing Data Storage
and Analysis. Detailed information about the event can be found at the
event website: http://www.XGenCongress.com.
