RNA-Seq and Digital PCR for Liquid Biopsies

The Third Annual SELECTBIO Circulating Biomarkers World Congress 2016 brings together academic researchers as well as industry participants to present and discuss the most up-to-date research and commercial activities in the translation of various circulating biomarker classes towards the clinic.The RNA-Seq and Digital PCR for Liquid Biopsies Conference Track brings together presenters from around the world to offer a comprehensive picture from research, commercial, and regulatory perspectives as to the deployment of biomarkers for precision medicine, and technical as well as economic and regulatory considerations in the development of liquid biopsies for the different cancer sub-classes as well as other disease areas.A co-located exhibit hall features companies developing technologies and products for the complete workflow from sample isolation, preparation, through data analysis.

Conference delegates receive access to all three co-located conference tracks, can mix-and-match presentations from all three tracks thereby maximizing the conference experience, and can network with delegates from the various co-located tracks and exhibition.
