ASHG 2016: Tune into SMRT Sequencing Presentations in Vancouver

We’re here in rainy, but beautiful Vancouver for the American Society of Human Genetics. ashg-2016-bttnASHG 2016 promises to be every bit as fascinating as always, with great speakers, excellent sessions, and thought-provoking posters.
The PacBio team will be based in booth #718, and we encourage you to stop by to see the Sequel System and learn more about how SMRT Sequencing has already made a genuine difference in our understanding of human genetics. We’re impressed by the wide variety of ASHG posters citing PacBio data this year and hope you get a chance to peruse them.
We’ll be hosting a luncheon workshop at ASHG called “Discovering and Targeting Causative Variation Underlying Human Genetic Disease Using SMRT Sequencing.” The event will be held on Thursday, October 20th, at 1:00 pm PDT in the Crystal Pavilion Ballroom at the Pan Pacific Hotel (connected to the convention center). We have a great speaker lineup:
 
Euan Ashley, Stanford University
Towards Precision Medicine
 
Melissa Laird Smith, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
SMRT Sequencing as a Translational Research Tool to Investigate Germline, Somatic and Infectious Diseases
 
Michael Lutz, Duke University Medical Center
Identification and Characterization of Informative Genetic Structural Variants for Neurodegenerative Diseases
 
Jonas Korlach, PacBio
A Future of High-Quality Genomes, Transcriptomes & Epigenomes
 
Don’t forget to register for the workshop, or sign up to watch the live webcast of it if you won’t be attending the meeting.
We hope to see you at ASHG!
