The event, which will take place at the University of Manchester from 29 August to 2 September, opens with an ethical debate between biology experts Professor Alan Handyside and Professor Robin Ali.

The conference will focus on the relationship between chromosome biology and the use of post-genomic technologies, 'chromonomics'.

Visit Manchester worked with Professor Dean Jackson of the University of Manchester and Professor Darren Griffin of the University of Kent to bring the event to Manchester.

Visit Manchester managing director Paul Simpson said: "As the home of the world’s first test-tube baby, it’s fitting that the International Chromosome Conference will take place in Manchester. This is a great example of the Conference Ambassador Programme in action and we are delighted to be welcoming a number of international experts to the city.

The University of Manchester features 26 meeting rooms, holding from 18 to 1000 delegates. It also houses a 500sqm exhibition area.
