Generate ultra-rich data for answers with impact.

Who says you can’t see it all? With a comprehensive view of structural variants and methylation, nanopore technology powers the bigger and bolder research questions you’ve always wanted to ask.​​

Join us on Thursday, February 29th, 2024 at The Alexandria at Torrey Pines to hear from local experts who are breaking new ground in human genomics, using nanopore technology.​​​

What you're missing matters. Stay on top of what's next.​

Aside from talks ranging from human genomics for rare disease, to sequencing for cancer research, the full-day agenda will include networking breaks, Q&A, product displays, and opportunities to engage with your peers and nanopore experts.

Please note that this is an in-person event.

There is no delegate fee for this event, but registration is required. Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Your place at this event will be confirmed via email from events@nanoporetech.com.
