State-of-the-art knowledge in Genomic Medicine
The Golden Helix Foundation in order to transfer and communicate the knowledge from researchers and scientists in the wider scientific community organizes conferences around the world with the main themes revolving around the fields of genomics, pharmacogenomics and personalized medicine.
