Genomics: The Power and the Promise Conference – Ottawa, Ontario

The Genomics: The Power and the Promise Conference was held at the Ottawa Convention Centre on November 24-26, 2014, hosted by Genome Canada and the Gairdner Foundation. This conference celebrated the achievements in genomics research in Canada and allowed participants to meet some of the best genomics researchers in the world.

Fabini was one of 30 participants, out of nearly 150 abstract submissions, invited to present a poster at the conference. The poster session covered studies from various fields – agriculture, energy, environment, fisheries, forestry, health, and mining. Included in his acceptance was a travel award that covered his expenses during his stay in Ottawa.

A copy of the presented poster, "Comparative genomics of Vibrio metoecus with its close relative Vibrio cholerae reveals its pathogenic potential," can be found here and the published abstract here.
