February 20-21, 2019
Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, Melbourne, Australia
We are very pleased to announce that the APN will be hosting the 2019 meeting of the Asian Mouse Mutagenesis Resource Association (AMMRA) & Asian Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (AMPC). Tasked with enabling an improved understanding of genome function for the improvement of human health, the AMMRA & AMPC are collaborative groups focused on the development of mouse phenotyping capabilities in Asia, and both are active members of the highly-influential International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC). The AMMRA & AMPC facilitate access to Asia’s most-prominent mouse phenotyping facilities, coordinating the development, archiving, distribution, and phenotyping of mouse disease models, and to establish, manage and develop mouse phenotyping and genomic medicine facilities throughout Asia.
This intimate 1 ½ day meeting will bring together the region’s leading clinicians, biomedical scientists, facility directors and senior executives to discuss new research innovations and technological developments, future research requirements, and strategies to ensure that Asian capabilities for mouse production and phenotyping continue to lead the world.
A full conference program is in preparation, and will include a series of lectures from internationally renowned specialists. A poster session will also be incorporated into proceedings.
Key topics to be covered in the program will include
- Systems Biology
- Genomic/Precision Medicine
- Technologies – single-cell transcriptomics, CRISPR
- Data Science/Bioinformatics/Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence
Attendees who are able to stay in Australia for an extended period may also wish to consider attending the 40th Annual Lorne Genome Conference being held on February 17-19.
For those attendees who wish to present oral or poster presentations during the meeting, please submit an Abstract (using our Abstract Template) by email to the Organising Committee for consideration.

International AMMRA and AMPC members registering their attendance before February 5 will be provided with one complementary nights accommodation at a nearby hotel. Further details can be found during online registration through the link above. Please note that we cannot guarantee accommodation for members registering after this date, and so we would strongly urge early registration to secure accommodation.

As a partner event to the 2019 AMMRA & AMPC Meeting, we will be running a day-long workshop for undergraduate and postgraduate students to come and learn from AMMRA and AMPC technical specialists on best-practice process for mouse production and phenotyping, recent technology developments, and experimental techniques for precision medicine. This will be held on February 22 at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research.
Workshop registrations ($50) can be secured HERE.
