Discover the Art of SMRT Sequencing:
AGBT Kicks Off This Week

Monday, February 8, 2016

agbtlogoWe’re packing our bags for Orlando and the 17th annual Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) conference! While we’ll miss the usual Marco Island setting, this year’s talks and posters look as appealing as ever. And as a meeting sponsor, we’ll be right in the thick of it — with a workshop, party, and coffee-lounge-style hospitality suite for AGBT attendees.

It’s a thrill to see that more than 40 talks and posters will showcase SMRT Sequencing data, many for human biomedical research applications. Customer presentations include a talk from the National Center for Biotechnology Information on evolving approaches to improve reference genome assemblies, a presentation from the Washington University School of Medicine on the first African reference genome assembly, and a talk from the University of Washington on long-read sequence assembly of the gorilla genome.

In addition, our CSO Jonas Korlach will present data from the new Sequel System in a plenary talk on Saturday afternoon. You can get a sneak peek at the new sequencer in our hospitality suite, Del Lago #2, or just enjoy some coffee, conversation, and some recharging (personal and devices).

This year our lunch workshop will be co-hosted by Roche (Friday, 12 p.m., Coquina North). “Revealing the Unknowns in Medical Research with Long-Read SMRT Sequencing” will include talks from Euan Ashley of Stanford University, Robert Sebra from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, Ben Murrell at the University of California, San Diego, and Ulf Gyllensten of Uppsala University. Can’t make it to the workshop? We’ll be streaming it live, so keep an eye on the blog for details or sign up here for info.

If you happen to be up early on Thursday or Friday (or if you just didn’t get to bed the night before), join us on the sand courts next to the Quench Poolside Bar and Grill for a friendly game of beach volleyball.

Finally, don’t miss our Friday night party. Celebrate with us under the stars on the swanky Fairway Lawn. Many thanks to our event partners — BioNano Genomics, DNAnexus, New England Biolabs, and Sage Science — for helping us make this cool event possible.

Here’s a full list of presentations and posters featuring PacBio data at the meeting, as well as our activities and events. We hope to see you in Orlando!
