Dear Genomic Data Enthusiasts,

The geXc – ‘Genomic Exchange Community’ symposia series is excited to announce its next event, geXc Scripps 2016, being held on Dec 6th 2016 at the Robert Paine Scripps Forum. We have a fantastic list of speakers and a packed schedule! D-MARK Biosciences is delighted to host this event with the support of the Scripps Institute. We would like to invite all San Diego regional researchers and Biotechnology community to attend. Please see the attached poster and visit  www.gexc2016.com for more information. 

geXc is a grassroots initiative with an intent to improve Genomics through collaboration and innovation. Genomics holds great promise for advancing our understanding of all living organisms.  Technological advancements in Genomics continue to come at alarming rate; there are numerous complexities to consider.  For the uninitiated, planning for an initial experiment and coping with data, can be overwhelming.  To help guide discovery and development in Genomics and data management, we have assembled leading experts, both academic and industry, to share their work and experiences.  The objective of this symposium is to provide a forum for sharing, learning, and networking. The symposium is open to anyone who is interested in Genomics and data! We close off the day with a poster competition and social, where cash prizes are awarded, $250 for first prize! If you have interest in entering the poster competition, please make sure to check off the box when you register online.  

The geXc symposia series is now in its 4th year! We have attracted over 4000 attendees, and all our events are very well received, truly enabling collaboration and innovation in Genomics. Due to the gracious contributions from the sponsors, this event is free to all. Breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks, and the social are provided at no cost to attendees thanks to our sponsors. The geXc Scripps 2016 sponsors include D-MARK Biosciences, Panasas, Western Digital, HGST, SanDisk, Weka.io, General Atomics, and Lab7.  Attendance is free; however, registration is required. You can learn more, register, and download the full agenda at www.gexc2016.com . We look forward to welcoming you at geXc Scripps 2016.
