An online event and networking opportunity from the Earlham Institute


Event outline

Developing solutions to global issues with EI's advanced capabilities and expertise in genomics and bioinformatics - improving global food security, environmental management, conservation, health and disease targeting.

Following last year's success, the Earlham Institute are hosting EI Innovate again this year to explore opportunities for collaboration and innovation with external organisations. Having worked with agri-food, biotech and med-tech sectors, the event will draw on a wealth of experience in collaborating with others on developing potential solutions to industrial and societal challenges.

Going virtual this year, EI Innovate will showcase EI's expertise and capabilities across 3 select areas :
  1. Disease identification and monitoring - how genomics and bioinformatics are used for disease identification and monitoring, from COVID-19, to AMR to agricultural pathogens.
  2. Finding a needle in a haystack - Identifying specific targets in health and disease with long read RNA and single cell sequencing.
  3. Accelerating plant breeding with next generation genetics, genomics and epigenetics.
The event will be sharing examples of existing collaborations and using it as a chance to explore new opportunities. There will also be a chance for participants to promote their work with lightning pitches, and participate in 1-to-1 meetings to network further.
