Dernière mise à jour : Mai 2018

The 3rd International Symposium on Microgenomics will be held in 2023.


Happy New Year !

Dear Colleagues,

The Microgenomics Organizing & Scientific Committees wish you all a happy, healthy & productive New Year 2022. And as all, we hope the current pandemic will change its course and that life will be able to be resumed as close to possible as before.



Being amidst another wave of this epidemic, you are all probably asking yourselves the same question as we: will we be able to maintain all our engagements in 2022 as planned or will we once again have to postpone, cancel or hold them virtually as in 2021. So, it will probably not surprise you that considering the current uncertainties related to the evolution of the pandemic, the difficulty in finding a venue big enough to ensure security for all and the problems associated with meals and virus transmission that the Microgenomics Scientific Committee has decided to postpone the symposium from 2021 to 2023. We will be holding a short webinar session in September 2022.

For those having missed out on some of our  webinar sessions, we are pleased to announce that all the 2021 webinars have been posted on the Microgenomics YouTube channel via this link: Do not hesitate sharing the link with your colleagues!

We will keep you posted on dates and all other information as they become available.

Kind regards,

The 3rd International  Symposium on Microgenomics organizing committees
