Generade Symposium

On the 19th of January 2017, Generade will organize its first symposium to present all current applied research projects.

There will be an interesting program along the following five themes: metagenomics, museomics, genomics, transcriptomics and metabolomics. The scientific aspects of current and future projects of Generade and the Faculty Science & Technology, University of Applied Sciences Leiden will be presented. Also research projects in the context of the Generade Project Call will be presented during an interactive poster session.
