Por Maristela Garmes

Entre os dias 9 e 11 de setembro será realizado o 5th International Symposium on Animal Functional Genomics (5º Simpósio Internacional de Genômica Animal Funcional), na cidade de Guarujá, em SP.

Pela primeira vez no Brasil, o evento reunirá os principais pesquisadores e representantes da industria de vários países com o objetivo de tratar das pesquisas de ponta que envolvem a área de genômica funcional e sua aplicação na saúde e produção animal. As inscrições estão abertas e podem ser feitas até o dia 31 de agosto.

A programação científica é composta por conferências, simpósios e sessões especiais de pôsteres. O Simpósio no Brasil é resultado de reuniões que ocorrem nas cidades de Dublin (2011), e Edimburgo (2008) e Michigan State University (2003 e 2006).

O prazo para envio de resumos online é 10 de agosto. As normas para submissão dos resumos estão publicadas no site do evento. Mais informações em http://isafg2013.org.br/
