The 10th Anniversary of the International Symposium on Milk Genomics and Human Health was held October 1-3, 2013 in Davis, California. This year’s theme was Milk Leading Life Sciences Research in the 21st Century. The three day event was organized by the IMGC in collaboration with the University of California, Davis, Foods for Health Institute, and local organizing committee in California. It brought together international experts in nutrition, genomics, bioinformatics and milk research to discuss and share the latest research through 28 oral presentations and two group discussions. In addition, 21 scientific posters were also presented.
The Annual Symposium 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. This year 98 people attended from 10 different countries. The program included sessions on Milk’s Manipulation of the Gut Microbiota, Mechanisms of Milk, Oligosaccharide, Utilization by Bacteria, Tenth Year Anniversary: Visions of the Past and the Future, Manipulation of Bovine Milk Fat, Genetic Selection for Economically Important Traits, Diagnostics, Analytics, and Milk-inspired Therapeutics.
