Abstract

The 11th Asia-Pacific Conference on Human Genetics 2015 (APCHG 2015) was held in Hanoi, Vietnam on September 16–19, 2015. The overall theme of the conference was: “Genetics and Genomics: The Path to Translational Medicine”, discussing about the progress of human genetics and genomics sciences from theory to practice. During this conference, the journal Translational Pediatrics (TP) was well presented in this meeting. The flyers of TP’s two focused issues, “Studies on Genetic Diseases for better therapies in Pediatrics” and “Genomic studies of pediatrics” were put into the delegate’s bag and reached more than 400 attendees.
