New methodologies and strategies for rare and small sample analysis: from agriculture to medicine

The 3rd International Symposium on Microgenomics 2023

New methodologies and strategies for rare and small sample analysis: from agriculture to medicine

The 3rd International Symposium on Microgenomics 2023 to be held on June 29-30, 2023 in Florence, Italy will be focused on new methodologies and strategies for rare and small sample analysis including all scientific fields from agriculture to medicine. During the symposium, international experts in their fields will be present to give very exciting talks in the following sessions: (1) Methodological Approaches & Instruments; (2) Solid-tissue Analysis & Spatial Omics; (3) Circulating Biomarkers, EV & Single Cells; (4) Integrative Analysis from Omics to Bioinformatics. Subjects such as laser microdissection, spatial-omics, liquid biopsy, solid tissue analysis, digital-PCR, extracellular vesicles (EV), the role of EV in the gut-brain axis, two-tailed PCR, circulating RNA and DNA, epigenetics, multi-omics, integrative bioinformatics, single-cell sequencing and much more will be discussed. A Technical Workshop will also precede the symposium on June 28 for all those interested in molecular biomarkers, spatial-transcriptomics and single-cell analysis, extracellular vesicles and dPCR and microgenomics.

For more information visit our web site at and follow us on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn. If you are curious about our 2021 webinar series, the talks are available on our YouTube channel!  


In this new International Symposium on Microgenomics, we will be organizing four exciting sessions focused on the following :

  • Methodological Approaches & Instruments
  • Solid-tissue Analysis & Spatial Omics
  • Circulating Biomarkers, EV & Single Cells
  • Integrative Analysis from Omics to Bioinformatics

Complete program coming soon on the 2023 Scientific Program page.


In the previous editions of the International Symposium on Microgenomics, more than 200 people participated in each of the first two editions in 2014 and 2016 and over 100 during each of our four 2021 webinar series. Here are a few of their comments: “Great as well” – “Very good quality with major scientists” – “Most of them were excellent and they corresponded to my expectations” – “Quality was really high” – “The invited speakers were great” – “High quality of presentations and the projects presented were very interesting” – “Perfect” – “Good organization” – “Very good ! Good food and friendly people!”

As in the 2014 and 2016 editions, in the 2023 event, internationally renowned speakers, experts in their field, will be presenting an overview of the present knowledge for obtaining high quality cells, extracellular vesicles (EV) or molecules whether in plants, animals or humans, from agriculture to medicine.
