With well over 5,000 attendees the Festival is now the UK’s largest annual life sciences event.

Thanks to the support of many people and organisations, the Festival has become the annual get-together for the UK genomics community. It’s also expanded to cover so much more than genomics, including biodata, diagnostics, drug discovery, AI, proteomics, multi-omics, single-cell & spatial analysis, plus so much more.

In January 2024, we welcomed 280+ speakers and enjoyed 12 theatres of content, the Genome Dome, Talkaoke, roundtable discussions, workshops, a vibrant exhibition floor,  speed networking and so much more.

We look forward to welcoming you to the next Festival of Genomics & Biodata in London on 29th - 30th January 2025.
