Welcome to NGC2017 Conference

Knowledge on genetics is an important basis for research in all organisms ranging from microbes, plants, animals to human. Genome studies have been completed in a variety of organisms. With the high-throughput sequencing, whole genome sequencing can be performed in short period of time and with higher accuracy. The advancing technology in this field has enable genetics researches for numerous discoveries in the past decade. The National Genetics Conference (NGC) is a superb place for researchers to share their latest developments in genetics and provides an opportunity to interact and exchange their knowledge, technologies and expertise for further collaborations. NGCs are held every two years by the Genetics Society of Thailand and leading universities. To commemorate the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Chulalongkorn University in the year 2017, the NGC2017 will be co-hosted by Chulalongkorn University. The first day of the conference will be in English as the distinguished lecturers would be world renowned researchers from difference countries.
The topic comprises 3 parts: New Gene Discovery, Genome Editing and Synthetic Biology. The New Gene Discovery theme focuses on finding human disease-causing genes and genes controlling important phenotypes in microbes, plants and animals which will lead to improvement of traits of interest. Genome Editing is an effective approach to improve phenotypic traits for medical, agricultural and industrial purposes. The extensive understanding of gene function and interrelationship between genes lead to Synthetic Biology, a methodology to synthesize biological compound with desired properties. The second and the third days of the conference will be in Thai. On the second day, the lectures will be given by prominent researchers from Thailand and oral presentations from selected abstracts. The third day will be a panel discussion on Ethical, Legal and Social issues followed by excursions. Participants are welcome to register for only the first day (English language only), only the third day (Thai language only) or the 3-day conference.
