Genetics Conference - POSTPONED
Genetics Australia has been forced to postpone a forum planned as part of its GA2020 conference because of COVID-19/Coronavirus.
The GA2020 conference forum was due to be held on Wednesday March 18 at Tabcorp Park Melton but a number of key speakers are unable to attend because of travel difficulties caused by the virus.
Genetics Australia CEO Anthony Shelly said the decision to postpone was unfortunate but unavoidable.
“The forum has been postponed until a date to be advised. We were hoping to continue with the tour which was heading to Gippsland on Thursday and Friday however they will no longer go ahead,” he said.
“We apologise for this inconvenience but I’m sure people will appreciate that it’s beyond our control.”
The conference aimed to examine future directions in genetics with a horizon of 2030.
People who registered for the conference will be refunded.
