Please join us for the 25th Annual Mouse Molecular Genetics Conference October 2-6, 2012 at Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, CA.


For the past 25 years, the Mouse Molecular Genetics meeting has been a leading venue for researchers who apply the methods of genetics and genomics to fundamental problems in mammalian biology, including from stem cell biology, early development, and models of human disease. In particular, the meeting showcases the latest technical developments in genetics and engineering of the mouse genome, and this year will feature a session devoted to imaging. The Mouse Molecular Genetics meeting assembles leaders in the field to present unpublished research findings, encourages junior investigators to participate in oral and poster presentations, and provides a stimulating environment for the exchange of ideas and information.
