Formerly known as Great Lakes Chromosome Conference
Welcome to the information site for the Great Lakes Cytogenomics Conference (GLCC).
The Great Lakes Cytogenomics Conference is held in May of each year in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Attendees from all over Canada
and the USA come to share and discuss their experiences in the field of Clinical Laboratory Genetics and Cytogenomics. This
conference is of particular interest to cytogenomicists, trainee fellows, and technologists working in the field.
This site contains information regarding past and future GLCC meetings, as well as links to other valuable sites. We
encourage you to explore this site and contact us with ideas and submissions.
The 55th GLCC will take place May 18-19, 2017, in Toronto. Plan to attend as we are certain the
2017 GLCC will be an informative and exciting event!

The purpose of the GLCC meeting is to bring together professionals in the field of clinical laboratory genetics and cytogenomics
each year, to discuss problems and solutions in an open and informal forum. Every attendee is encouraged to bring interesting
case reports, studies or research projects that provide springboards for discussion and interaction.
