Session Abstract – PMWC 2023 Silicon Valley

Showcase Track S1 - January 25 9.30 A.M.-3.00 P.M.,Showcase Track S1 - January 26 10.00 A.M.-10.15 A.M.,Showcase Track S1 - January 27 11.45 A.M.-12.00 P.M.


The PMWC 2023 Genomic Profiling Showcase will provide a 15 min speaking opportunity for selected companies working with the latest technologies in nucleic acid sequencing such as NGS, providing instrumentation for genomic sequencing, and offering direct to consumer services. These companies will share their innovative products and services to an audience of leading investors, potential clients and partners. The Genomic Profiling Showcase will exhibit the latest innovations in methods and instruments used for DNA/ RNA sequencing to ascertain the genomic and transcriptional profile of a person in order to understand why some people get certain diseases while others do not, or why people react in different ways to the same drug. This information is also being used to develop new ways to diagnose, treat, and prevent diseases, such as cancer.
