Oxford Global Conferences are proud to present the latest event in our Next Generation Sequencing series – the Food, Nutrition and Agriculture Genomics Congress, to be held on the 20th & 21st April 2015.

Recent advances in genomic technologies have given researchers the opportunity of implementing genome sequencing to benefit the food, nutrition and agriculture industry. Our unique conference will bring together renowned researchers to explore the application of NGS in areas such as: personalising nutrition and health, increasing crop quality, improving livestock breeding programs and identifying genetic and epigenetic interactions.

On day one, discussions will focus on the use of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies in DNA and RNA sequencing. NGS technologies are indispensable tools in nutrigenomics and agrigenomics research. Our experts will compare different NGS data analysis methods and discuss different metagenomic and epigenetic analysis approaches. Hear latest case studies from our NGS experts outlining the recent advances in the use of NGS to improve crop quality, produce nutrient-rich meat and investigate the human gut microbiota.

Day two will feature case studies from our genomics experts outlining the recent advances in plant genome sequencing to improve crop quality and production of nutrient-rich food. Areas of discussion will include nutrigenomics and nutritional epigenomics, microbial genomics, diet-genome interactions and microbiota gut research. Our experts will explore the possibility of personalised nutrition. Presentations on day two will also focus on the latest advances in animal genomics. Our renowned researchers will discuss the importance of immune gene sequencing, agrigenomics in Europe and sequencing in the animal farming industry.

This prestigious event will attract over 175 experts wanting to learn more about key solutions being provided to their industry, to analyse current technologies and to network with their peers.

The Food, Nutrition and Agriculture Genomics Congress is part of the highly successful Oxford Global NGS Series.
