EMBO | EMBL 2011 Symposia : Cancer Genomics

17-19 September 2011 - EMBL Advanced Training Centre, Heidelberg, Germany

March 29, 2011

This symposium will provide an opportunity to learn about the rapidly progressing area of cancer genomics including presentations representing many of the major international cancer genome sequencing projects as well as the areas of cancer epigenomics, mouse cancer models and the developments in both computational and bioininformatics areas that are required to manage, interpret and present these substantial datasets.
