ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- BioInformatics, LLC (http://www.gene2drug.com) -- the leading market research and consulting firm serving the life science industry -- will be a recognized sponsor of the First Annual Consumer Genetics Show (www.consumergeneticsshow.com) in Boston, MA at the Hynes Convention Center on June 9-11, 2009. BioInformatics, LLC will also be exhibiting at the show. The first conference of its kind, this event will showcase both genetic testing companies offering a wide variety of products, as well as the genetic tool companies that support this emerging healthcare specialty, a nascent market that is being watched closely by clients of BioInformatics, LLC.
"This field is largely uncharted," noted Tamara Zemlo, Ph.D. M.P.H, Vice President of Advisory Services for BioInformatics, LLC. "The implications of consumers ordering genetic testing -- without involving a physician -- are vast, and this conference is the first of its kind to bring together the biotech, healthcare, diagnostic and legal pioneers in the emerging field of 'personal genetics.'" Dr. Zemlo will present at the conference following keynote speaker Francis Collins, M.D., Ph.D., former Director of the National Human Genome Research Institute, who led the successful effort to complete the Human Genome Project.
Allowing the public access to the exhibit hall will give consumers an understanding of the various genetic tests and products on the market, as well as provide insight as to which of these tests may be most appropriate for their needs. Companies that provide the genetic tools, next generation sequencing platforms and SNP analysis instruments for these tests will also be present, thus allowing the consumer to gain an understanding of the fidelity of testing in these various personalized genetic services.
For an admission fee of $15 USD per person, professionals from the genetic research community and the public will be allowed access to the exhibit hall. Exhibitor and attendee registration forms can be found at http://www.consumergeneticsshow.com.
