2018 Genome and Transcriptome Engineering Conference

October 15, 2018

The 5th Symposium for the Institute for Genomic Medicine was held at the Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine on Monday, October 15, 2018. This meeting called scientists from all over the nation to come together and contribute their cutting-edge ideas on “Genome and Transcriptome Engineering.” As a platform for researchers to discuss the latest advancements on genomic and transcriptional manipulation, this meeting strived to further uncover breakthroughs in gene-linked diseases and the improvement of healthcare overall. It was in conjunction with the American Society of Human Genetics meeting occurring on October 16th through October 20th, 2018.

2014 Symposium of the Institute for Genomic Medicine

October 17, 2014

The behavior of a complex biological system such as a tumor, a microbiome or a human brain reflects the identities and behaviors of thousands to billions of individual cells. Using new single-cell methodologies and analytics, science is beginning to unravel this complexity. It is now possible to dissect the genetic, transcriptomic and proteomic composition of thousands of single cells in parallel and at unprecedented molecular resolution. The result has been an explosion of new information on genetic mechanisms underlying development and human disease.

The 4th symposium of the Institute for Genomic Medicine (IGM) at UC San Diego featured leaders in the field of single cell genomics from academia and industry and was presented in partnership with .


2013 Pathways to Genomic Discovery – The Illumina Route

October 13, 2013

Illumina and the UCSD IGM-HTGF will be providing details of an RNA-Seq Grant Program at the seminar. Be sure to attend so you can learn how you can take advantage of this unique opportunity. 9:30 am - 2:00 pm

2012 Nature/Institute for Genomic Medicine Symposium

November 4-5, 2012

Building upon the outstanding success of the Inaugural and 2011 Symposia at the Institute for Genomic Medicine at University of California, San Diego, this year's symposium, in partnership with Nature, is aimed at the international scientific community, with the goal of fostering and facilitating communication and collaborative initiatives in medical genomics.
