Talkaoke Online at The Festival of Genomics & Biodata

January 26 - January 28

The Festival of Genomics & Biodata is now in its 6th year. What started as a 600 person, 50 speaker-event in 2016 at Excel in East London now attracts registrations from well over 2,000 people, has over 100 speakers and a new central London location. The Festival has become the main place for the UK genomics industry to meet, have fun, learn, do business, connect with other people and get inspired.

The Festival is not like other genomics events, and neither is it meant to be. The early idea was “Woodstock for Genomics” … to bring people together, inspire them and leave them buzzing with energy and ideas – but also entertained. So that they leave with an increased motivation and the capability to better use genomics and related technologies. Ultimately, we want to make sure that patients benefit.
