33rd International Mammalian Genome Conference
25-29 September 2019, Strasbourg, France


The main purpose of the International Mammalian Genome Society is to promote and stimulate research in mammalian genetics from sequencing to functional genomics, mutagenesis and mutant analysis, and to represent the concerns of its members in their professional activities. The company's activities have grown with the growing awareness of the important and unique role of rodent species in biomedical research and current genetics.

The perpetual evolution of mammalian genomics is the main focus of IMGS' annual conferences. The 2 organizers of the 33rd edition are Yann HERAULT (deputy director of the IGBMC, director of PHENOMIN-ICS, Strasbourg and Elected member of the IMGS Secretariat) and Xavier MONTAGUTELLI (head of the Mouse Laboratory, Institut Pasteur, Paris)
