Infectious Disease Genomics and Global Health

1 October 2012, 9.00 AM

Wellcome Trust/Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory conference on Infectious Disease Genomics and Global Health is now open for registration. Abstract deadline 25 July 2012.
1-3 October 2012

The Møller Centre, Churchill College – part of the historic University of Cambridge.

The emphasis will be on the application of genomic technologies to infectious disease in a global health context. Infectious disease is a major burden on healthcare throughout the world, particularly in developing countries. However, disease agents do not respect borders, and an integrated global approach is necessary to understand transmission and evolution of infectious disease agents.
