If you are planning on attending ABRF in Palm Springs this year, come by our booth (401). We will be providing demos of Genohub’s interface and offering free $25 Amazon gift cards to the first 10 service providers who sign up and list services at ABRF.
The agenda for the genomics track of this meeting looks great. Some of the talks I’m interested in are from Herbert Auer, Piero Dalerba and Scott Sills on advances in single cell genomics and transcriptomics, a topic I expect to grow more and more popular as techniques for making libraries improve. Kaya Bilguvar and Martin Kircher look to have interesting talks on whole exome sequencing in nervous system disorders and prioritizing variants respectively. The talks on the challenges and successes of establishing CLIA facilities for NGS labs look promising and useful to any group thinking about taking the plunge into clinical sequencing. At Genohub, we allow NGS service providers who have CLIA labs to prominently display this. When searching for services, researchers can easily search for labs that are CLIA.
You can follow us on Twitter for meeting updates. For those of you who are attending, we hope to see you in a few days!
