AGBT 2015: Seeing the Genome in a New Light (Sunshine?)

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

Like many others, we’re looking forward to an exciting week of science and sun at the 16th annual Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) conference! We’re hosting a lunch workshop on Friday, February 27, in the Palms Ballroom from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm EST. We hope you can join us onsite (please reserve your seat) and even if you’re not at the conference, you can watch the live stream.

Here’s the agenda:

Towards Comprehensive Genomics – Past, Present and Future

The Human Genome: From One to One Million
J. Craig Venter, Human Longevity Inc.

Is Perfect Assembly Possible?
Gene Myers, Max Planck Institute

Finishing Genomes: Why Does It Matter?
Deanna Church, Personalis

De Novo Assembly of a Human Diploid Genome for the Asian Genome Project
Jeong-Sun Seo, Macrogen Inc. and Seoul National University College of Medicine

PacBio Long Read Sequencing and Structural Analysis of a Breast Cancer Cell Line
W. Richard McCombie, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

After reviewing the packed AGBT agenda, we’ve already spotted several can’t-miss presentations. These speakers and talks look especially promising and we’ll be covering several of them on the blog later this week:

Evan Eichler, University of Washington: “Resolving the Complexity of Human Genetic Variation by Single-Molecule Sequencing”

Matthew Blow, Joint Genome Institute: “Sequencing-Based Approaches for Genome-Scale Functional Annotation”

Tim Smith, U.S. Meat Animal Research Center: “A Genome Assembly of the Domestic Goat from 70x Coverage of Single Molecule Real Time Sequence”

Amy Ly, The Genome Institute at Washington University: “PacBio Application – Influenza Viral RNA-Seq”

Somasekar Seshagiri, Genentech: “Spectrum of Diverse Genomic Alterations Define Non-Clear Cell Renal Carcinoma Subtypes”

Gene Myers, Max Planck Institute: “Low Coverage, Correction-Free Assembly for Long Reads”AGBT is also known for its excellent poster sessions, and we’ll be spending plenty of time in the poster hall this year. If you’re interested in learning more about SMRT® Sequencing results, be sure to stop by some of these posters.

And if you need a break from the marathon, feel free to put your feet up in our suite (Lanai #189) during our open hours:

Wednesday: 8:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m.
Thursday: 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m.
Friday: 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

We look forward to seeing you in Marco Island and for those tuned in at home via our blog for lots of updates and live streaming of the workshop!
