11th International Symposium on Milk Genomics and Human Health 

The 11th International Symposium on Milk Genomics and Human Health is being held in Aarhus, Denmark from October 6-8, 2014.

The conference website reads: "The three day event is organized by the IMGC in collaboration with Arla Foods, Aarhus University, the Danish Dairy Research Foundation, and the local organizing committee in Denmark. It will bring together international experts in nutrition, genomics, bioinformatics and milk research to discuss and share the latest research. The annual symposium is our flagship event that features scientific research related to milk and human health done throughout the world. The symposium draws from the diversity of its memberships to cover the breath of genomics themes that reflect the interest of the Consortium.  The goal of the Consortium is to bring together the research and dairy communities to share, translate, and interpret data that are happening within the fields of the “-omics” science.

Topics for this year’s symposium include:
  • Milk Genomics – where it all starts…
  • Lactation in a comparative biology perspective
  • Milk and the Neonate
  • Technological aspects of milk
  • Obesity and the metabolic syndrome
  • Biological effects of milk constituents"
