Welcome

Alexandria University Genomic Committee is pleased to announce the 1st Scientific day in our series of meetings on genomic applications in health and social development. This meeting will explore how cutting-edge genomic research translates into clinical care and enlightens our understanding of genetic disease.

As genomic sequencing has gained popularity in the diagnosis and prevention of genetic diseases, our meeting will focus on large-scale genome sequencing applications that help in understanding the impact of recent advances in genomics and technology on the care of patients with genetic diseases.
