The Wellcome Trust is pleased to announce the 28th annual Mouse Molecular Genetics conference. This conference is the leading forum for researchers who apply genetics and genomics techniques in the mouse to address fundamental issues in mammalian biology. The Mouse Molecular Genetics conference attracts international participation and promotes the presentation of novel, unpublished research findings. This year’s meeting will showcase the latest developments in genetics, genomics, engineering of the mouse genome, systems analysis and imaging of dynamic molecular and physiological processes. The meeting takes the form of topic-related platform sessions and two poster sessions. Sessions will include organogenesis, development, genomics, epigenetics, stem cell biology, technology, models of human disease and cancer. The platform sessions are composed of long talks from leaders in the field and short presentations selected from submitted abstracts, often from graduate students and post-docs. This format provides a stimulating environment for the exchange of ideas and information.
