Register for 2023 IFSH High-Throughput Sequencing (HTS) Symposium


We look forward to your attendance at our 6th IFSH High-Throughput Sequencing (HTS) Symposium to be held May 31 and June 1, 2023, at the Chicago Marriott Southwest at Burr Ridge, Illinois.

The topic this year will be Food Safety, HTS, Big Data and Data Sharing.

Synopsis: In the 6th installment of our annual HTS symposiums, our prominent guest speakers from the biotech enterprises, academia, government agencies, food industry, laboratory and consulting/analytical companies, will present and discuss the latest updates on HTS, its many applications and the benefits and challenges of implementing and using HTS in their organizations. Our colleagues in the FDA, CDC and USDA FSIS will provide insight into how the utilization and implementation of HTS in their organizations for nearly a decade have improved food safety and human health in the U.S. and beyond. In addition, the attendees and participants in this meeting will learn about and share their knowledge and experience with the special topic of this year’s HTS symposium, “big data.” We will explore what big data is, what its values are, how it is produced, collected, stored, maintained, and integrated with the data from other sources, and how it is analyzed and visualized in order to lead us to the best course of action. Our panel of experts, one from the agencies and the other from the food industry, will discuss the important issue of data sharing, its necessity and importance, and the real and perceived obstacles that hinder it.

Registration is now open.
