The AGTA Annual Conference is an essential event for researchers and industry representatives who work with genomic technologies in a variety of contexts including platform development, medical genomics, functional genomics, non-model systems, epigenomics and plant genomics. The conference also offers an important opportunity for computational biologists, bioinformaticians and data visualisation specialists to interact with technologists and biologists. This unique mix is one of the reasons that the Australian genomics community has a dynamic cross-disciplinary and innovative approach to genomic analysis, and is at the forefront of analysis tools for new types of ‘omics’ data.

AGTA has a long and proud history of applying strong equity, diversity and inclusiveness (EDI) principles in our conferences and events, including gender balance in our invited and plenary speakers, travel awards, and access to on-site parent rooms at our conference venues. For detailed information about our EDI approach, please refer to the AGTA Conference EDI Policy.

"The AGTA conference is a fantastic place for crossdisciplinary interactions, and facilitates this far more than any other conference that I know."
