Who will attend?
The expected participants are all interpreting DNA variants on a regular basis, professionally, at clinical diagnostic and research labs, and generally speaking, people working with and interpreting DNA. Therefore any products or technologies for molecular genetics and diagnostic labs would be most appropriate to be showcased at this event. We are especially looking for companies to host workshops showcasing their Genome informatics tools; due to limitations in the program these are extremely limited.
Why partner with the VEPTC?
This is a time of great uncertainty for industries across the world. The Variant Effect Prediction Training Course has a proven track record and provides a unique opportunity for companies to provide product training in genome informatics tools and showcase genomics products to a growing market in Russia and nearby countries.
At the VEPTC we gather influencers and key desicion makers from molecular genetics labs interpreting variants on a daily basis. This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase your products to the people who use them by providing product training in the form of a workshop, a company lecture, an exhibition booth or a combination of these. We provide ample opportunity for Networking to generate leads in the breaks, poster session and the Welcome Function.
