We welcome you to the 23rd Annual Conference of the International Mammalian Genome Society and to La Jolla, California. We are planning an exciting meeting with emphasis on cutting edge research in the fields of mammalian genetics, epigenetics, and phenotyping, touching on wide-ranging areas of biology. The meeting will begin with Bioinformatics Workshops followed by the Student Satellite Meeting. It will continue with sessions on Large Scale Resources, Infectious Disease, Host Resistance and Epigenetics, Neuroscience, Behavior and Sensory Perception, Development and Neoplasia, Metabolism and Physiology, Scientific Approaches to Animal Husbandry, and Population Genetics, Comparative Genomics, and Evolution. This year, we will learn the initial results of massively parallel sequencing applied to numerous mouse genomes. Attendees will also tour the world-famous San Diego Zoo after a special lecture on the evolution of mammals and preservation of mammalian species.
La Jolla (Spanish La Joya, "The Jewel"), is the Jewel of America's finest city, San Diego. La Jolla is located 15 minutes from downtown San Diego. It has wonderful beaches, cultural activities and fine restaurants. La Jolla melds an exquisite combination of a southern European resort atmosphere and Southern California fun.
The conference will take place in the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines, nestled in the Palisades above Southern California's spectacular coastline and overlooking the legendary Torrey Pines Golf Course. It's at the heart of San Diego's expansive bioscience and biotechnology community, walking distance from the beach, and minutes from the village of La Jolla, Del Mar and downtown San Diego.
We look forward to seeing you in La Jolla, California!
