AGBT 2015, Marco Island


The 16th annual Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) meeting will be held in Marco Island, Florida, on February 25-28, 2015. As a recognized cornerstone for the genomics research community, this annual meeting provides an outstanding forum for exchanging information about the latest advances in DNA sequencing technologies, experimental and analytical approaches for genomic studies, and their myriad applications. The meeting format includes daytime plenary sessions that feature invited speakers and abstract-selected talks that highlight cutting-edge research across the broad landscape of genomics research. Experimental and computational approaches for effectively utilizing the latest DNA sequencing technologies will be highlighted during evening concurrent sessions. The 2015 meeting will feature clinical translation of next-generation DNA sequencing technologies and pipelines, a vendor forum, and vendor-sponsored workshops. Please plan to join us in Marco Island for the 2015 AGBT meeting, where the relaxed atmosphere and outstanding science will again provide an exceptional opportunity to meet and interact with scientific leaders from the various disciplines being advanced by large-scale DNA sequencing and genome exploration.
