Dear participants,

Welcome, بكم مرحباً

On behalf of the members of the organizing committee, we welcome you to the first international congress of the Moroccan Society of Genomics and Human Genetics (SM2GH), jointly organized this year with the third edition of the School of Immunogenetics (SIG ) in Agadir from 19 to 21 December 2019. The theme chosen for this scientific event is "Bridging Gaps between Genomics and Medicine in Africa".

Genomics Medicine in Africa is still not yet well developed the time where it’s extremely used and widely practiced in other continents. Since the achievement of human genome sequencing in 2003 and before lot of scientific voices around world underlay the great benefit in clinical practice. In fact, the theme chosen for this year is a very strong sign expressing our first step to strengthen the existing links between Moroccan colleagues and African researchers in the field of research in genomics, human genetics and immunogenetics.

Furthermore, in the same way, Morocco's geographical location and its highly favorable supreme directive undoubtedly guarantee a good success and an adequate environment for the development of these disciplines in Africa and with the rest of the world.

We hope that this great international scientific meeting will be an excellent opportunity to debate and discuss recent work on human genetics and to discuss the latest new technologies in genomics and immunogenetics.

We warmly thank our keynote and invited speakers who have accepted to give high level scientific conferences, and we would like also to thank lot all participants coming from different countries around the world and cities of Morocco.

Our sincere and heartfelt thanks also go to all staff of the organizing and scientific committee for their wonderful work, and to all institutional partners and loyal sponsors. They put together forth the time and effort in order to be as successful as possible.
