SAVE THE DATES: four webinars in 2021 - October 19th, November 9th, November 23rd, November 30th!

Microgenomics 2021 is postponed to 2022 but four FREE webinars (registration mandatory) will be held this fall.

Aims and Topics

Oocyte selected for Laser Microdissection

With the postponement of Microgenomics 2021 until the fall of 2022, four webinars (FREE OF CHARGE BUT REGISTRATION MANDATORY) are being organized on October 19th, November 9th, November 23rd and November 30th on the symposium's topics: today's challenge: understanding and analysing molecular targets within a given cell type in the tissue environment or liquid biopsies - isolating cells, extracellular vesicles (EV) or molecules - working on very small quantities of biological material.

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.


Symposium News

3rd international Symposium on Microgenomics 2021 Webinar Series


Participation free of charge but mandatory.
