Welcome Message

Welcome Message from the Organizing Committee of the HGM2019

On behalf of the local organizing committee and HUGO, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the Human Genome Meeting 2019 on April 24-26th, 2019 in Seoul, South Korea.

In the last decade, South Korea has established itself as the major genomics hub in East Asia with a strong focus on biomedical application of genomics and bioinformatics disciplines. The theme of the HGM2019 – "Towards Implementing Genomic Medicine" reflects the current trend of translating genomics research into medical applications, which inevitably requires merge of state-of-the-art technologies such as big data analytics, population-scale genomics, single cell genomics, genome editing, etc. HGM2019 will be a platform to highlight recent progresses in these fascinating new science and technologies.

Seoul is a city where tradition meets innovation. Unique traditional attractions with more than 600 years of history co-exist with dynamic cultures such as K-POP and high-tech IT technologies. Seoul is a representative place for the city that never sleeps with its own vibrant atmosphere with spectacular night view which will amaze you. We welcome you to experience one of the most lively and attractive cities in Asia and enjoy rich cultural heritage, night life and gastronomy.

HGM 2019 will bring together renowned geneticists, clinician, bioinformaticians, and other health-care professionals involved in translational genomics. We will have prominent keynote lectures, scientific sessions addressing recent advances in genome technologies, and fruitful discussions to promote exchange of data and ideas. Drawing on a truly broad-reaching and international line up of experts, HGM2019 promises to be both a dynamic forum for scientific exchange and a unique opportunity to bring together global expertise all focused on the subject of "Towards Implementing Genomic Medicine".

We look forward to welcoming you in Seoul!!

Yours sincerely,
