GRMRC wins top prizes at 11th Malaysia Genetics Congress

11th Malaysia Genetics Congress is the biggest biennial congress of its kind in Malaysia and over the years, the congress has become a “must-attend” event in the field of genetics for attendees and exhibitors alike. The 2015 theme, “Focus on Genes, Maximise the Impact”, seeks to explore the myriad ways in which we pursue the goals of our research in genetics. To this end, the congress presented once again a wide range of invited speakers, all outstanding in their fields.
