10th International Equine Genome Mapping Workshop
The Biotechnology Centre of Azores from the University of Azores, Associated Laboratory of the Institute for Biotechnology and Bioengineering was selected by the Dorothy Russell Havemeyer Foundation to host the “10th International Equine Genome Mapping Workshop” to be held in July 10-13 in Furnas, S.Miguel, Portugal.
The First International Equine Gene Mapping Workshop sponsored by the Dorothy Russell Havemeyer Foundation (DRHF) was conducted in 1995 in Lexington, Kentucky. Since then, a series of horse genome workshops were conducted by the DRHF every two years (San Diego, California; 1997; Uppsala, Sweden; 1999; Brisbane, Australia; 2001; Kreuger Park, South Africa; 2003; Newbridge, Ireland; 2005; Tahoe City, California; 2007; Ickworth, Suffolk, United Kingdom; 2009; Chaska, Minnesota; 2011).
Over 200 scientists from 20 countries around the world have been participating in these workshops, sharing ideas and resources, collaborating and creating a common genomics framework.
This is a unique opportunity to promote the Biotechnology Centre of Azores, the University of Azores and the Azores.
The Portuguese airline TAP is associated with the workshop as Official Carrier (www.flytap.com). To benefit of the promotion follow the following instructions: Partnership between TAP Portugal and Biotechnology Centre of Azores, Associated Laboratory Institute for Biotechnology and Bioengineering.
