Genetics in Forensics Congress

Over 150 delegates representing internationally renowned academic institutions, forensic laboratories, government bodies and sequencing solution providers

Over 30 case studies and presentations focused on novel DNA profiling platforms & technologies, the applications of NGS in forensic science & key developments in human identification research

3 interactive streams:

  • NGS In Forensic Science: Current Opportunities And Key Challenges
  • Key Challenges In Forensic Genetics Research: Overcoming Interpretation, Database and Casework Hurdles
  • Forensic Applications Of DNA Markers: The Latest Research In Short Tandem Repeats (STRs), Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) And mtDNA Profiling

14 pre-scheduled one to one meetings, exhibition and informal networking opportunities

Oxford Global is proud to present the Genetics in Forensics Congress, taking place on the 14th and 15th of March 2016 at the Radisson Blu Portman Hotel, central London, UK. Across the two day event, our expert panel will offer a comprehensive look at critical advances in forensics research, and we will also be hosting key biotech solution providers, giving attendees the chance to hear about the very latest state-of-the-art technologies including NGS and rapid DNA analysis platforms.

One of the main themes at the meeting will be the application of NGS technologies in forensic science, and day one features a whole stream dedicated to exploring the opportunities and challenges of NGS, including statistical analysis and interpretation of DNA profiles and mixture deconvolution. Our highly esteemed panel of speakers will also address topics including body fluid identification, SNP and STR analysis, and RNA profiling.

On day two the focus turns to the most exciting research into DNA markers, including how to handle degraded DNA samples, strategies for familial search, and rare DNA variants and how to interpret them. The programme also includes talks covering microbial forensics, molecular evolution in court, lessons learned from famous cases and clinical perspectives on molecular autopsy.

The event is part of Oxford Global’s highly successful Next Generation Sequencing Series. For more information on other events in the series, please see below:
