Omics Workshop - April 11, 2017, hosted by NASA at the Johnson Space Center

Are you developing or applying omics to assess human health or understand the environment?

Are you looking for omics-related solutions or collaboration partners?

NASA and the Technology Collaboration Center are holding an Omics Workshop, at the NASA Johnson Space Center, on April 11, 2017, covering a broad range of cross-industry Omics and Systems Biology topic areas.

Omics integrates multiple biological disciplines (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, epigenomics, metabolomics and microbiomics) to focus on measurements of a diverse array of biomolecules.

This event will bring together organizations from a variety of sectors to accelerate shared awareness of the rapidly changing state of the art in omics science and technology, with presentations on the latest advances and unmet challenges, in a format providing an opportunity for participants to network and explore potential partnerships, including working group sessions fostering collaborative insight on specific topics.

Register at or by sending an e-mail to All event participants are required to register prior to the event. Event tickets are $25 for TCC members, and $50 for non-members.

Event attendance will be limited – please register soon before this event is sold out.
