8th international Gene Quantification Event

qPCR dPCR & NGS 2017
Liquid Biopsy, Integrative Big Data Analysis, Biomarker Signature
… and beyond

Symposium  &  Industrial Exhibition  &  Application Workshops

3 – 7 April 2017,   in Freising-Weihenstephan,
School of Life Sciences, Technical University of Munich, Weihenstephan, Germany

Dear colleagues,
dear researchers,
dear company representatives,The great international interest in the previous qPCR dPCR & NGS Events from 2004 till 2015 with a constant audience of more than 500 participants from all over the world motivates repeating the success next year in April 2017. Hence the date for the 8th international Gene Quantification Event is from 3rd to 7th April 2017. We broaden our focus in genomics applications from quantitative RT-PCR, over digital PCR to the latest Next Generation Sequencing technologies and the connected integrative Big Data Analysis. As done in previous years, we offer a three day scientific symposium with around 70 talks in two lecture halls. Parallel to the scientific symposium an Industrial Exhibition will take place where around 35-40 international companies will present their newest qPCR, dPCR and NGS services, hardware and technologies. The symposium will be followed by various 2-day PCR & NGS related Workshops taking place April 6th and 7th powered by leaders in the field.
The focus topics of the qPCR dPCR & NGS 2017 Gene Quantification Event are:

Liquid Biopsy, Integrative Big Data Analysis, Biomarker Signature … and beyond

Event location is the central lecture hall complex and the foyer at TUM School of Life Sciences (Technical University of Munich) in Freising Weihenstephan, Germany. The TUM and the Biotech region around Munich are part of the largest Biotech cluster in Europe (BioM), representing more than 250 companies and academic institutions, located close to the Munich airport (MUC) directly in the heart of Bavaria.

The symposium is based on around 70 lectures and 100 posters presented by international recognised experts in their application fields. The emphasis will be on unbiased, didactic and scientific information exchange. One third of the talks will be presented by invited speakers, one third of the speakers will be selected from the submitted abstracts and one third will be given to PCR and NGS company R&D representatives. Various poster sessions will be held in parallel in a separate poster exhibition hall.

All scientific contributions (talks and poster abstracts) presented at the symposium will be published in a Supplement Issue of Biomolecular Detection and Quantification (Elsevier, ISSN 2214-7535).

All talks will be recorded and made public in autumn 2017 via the www.eConferences.de streaming platform.
