Dear Colleagues, dear Friends,
Twenty years ago, our genomics core facility has been established from a partnership between the Institut Curie, the École Supérieure de Physique et Chimie Industrielles de la ville de Paris (ESPCI) and the École normale supérieure (ENS). Since its inception, we focused our activity on functional genomics analysis of eukaryotes to help laboratories design and conduct state of the art high-throughput projects from the experimental design to data analysis. We have been key players on many fields including yeast sequencing genome project, microarrays development, single cell gene expression, high throughput sequencing revolution and now nanopore technologies.
In order to celebrate this anniversary we will organize in Paris on March the 28 th 2019 a half-day meeting entitled: “20 years of genomics past and future directions”. This event will feature a series of talks covering key research fields in genomics. We will look at the past of course, but we will also discuss the future of the field. The afternoon will be followed by a reception at the Musée d’Orsay including a gala dinner and a guided tour of the remarkable art collections.
The conference will be held at the École normale supérieure in Paris, with an exceptional speaker line up including Clive Brown, Ana Conesa Cegarra, Denis Milan and Catherine Nguyen. It will also be the occasion to meet biotech companies involved in future applications for genomics.

We are looking forward to that celebration where we expect great exchanges on past and future challenges in genomics.
Stéphane LE CROM,
Scientific head of genomics core facility
