Lausanne Genomics Days 2020

The Lausanne Genomics Days 2020 will be held on February 10th-11th, 2020, Génopode, Auditorium C, UNIL-Sorge.

Lausanne Genomics Days 2020 is an annual event sponsored by the University of Lausanne and the Conférence Universitaire de Suisse Occidentale (CUSO).

This 2-day event will bring to Lausanne internationally renowned investigators to present and discuss the newest developments in genomics and genomic technologies and their impact on biological research. The format of the event has been updated in 2020, introducing presentations from UNIL laboratories , the objective being to share, stimulate the usage of, and promote the development of cutting edge genomics methods for the benefit of the whole UNIL community.

The 2020 edition of the Lausanne Genomics Days will be held Monday and Tuesday February 10 and 11 in the Genopode Building of the University of Lausanne
