Make plans now to join us in Heidleberg for IMGC 2017! The 31st IMGC is hosted by the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and will be a joint meeting of the International Mammalian Genome Society (IMGS) and the Mouse Molecular Genetics (MMG). Heidleberg is one of europe's most vibraint and charming cities, where you can discover the latest breakthroughs in molecular biology, genetics, and genomics by day, and explore castles, the world's largest wine barrel, and romance by night.
Scholarships will be available through IMGS, so stay tuned.
The International Mammalian Genome Society exists primarily to foster and stimulate research in mammalian genetics from sequencing and functional genomics to mutagenesis and mutant analysis, and to represent the concerns of its members in their professional activities. The activities of the society have expanded with the growing realization of the important and unique role of rodent species in current biomedical and genetic research.
The extensive mouse genetic resources and the identification of evolutionary conserved linkage relationships between mice and humans offer significant opportunities for understanding gene function in relation to human development and disease. The role of the mouse in biomedical and genetic research continues to expand as the benefits of comparative sequence analysis of the human and mouse genomes and large scale mutagenesis programs are obtained. The roles of other mammalian organisms will expand as their genomes are sequenced.
