DNAnexus Heads to Orlando for AGBT 2016

AGBT_logo_350Each February, droves of scientists descend upon Florida for the annual Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) conference. The conference is a mix of long days filled with presentations, and lively nights consisting of cocktail parties and networking. This February 10-13th , the conference takes place in Orlando, considered by some to be the “happiest place on earth,” where global researchers, leaders, and innovators will meet to share new discoveries and cutting edge breakthroughs.

If you’re headed to AGBT, please join us in Marbella 2 to discuss our latest projects, datasets, and tools. It’s been one heck of a rocket ship ride in 2015; already 2016 promises even more opportunities for fruitful collaborations.

Learn how DNAnexus is transforming the PacBio de novo assembly experience by providing industry-leading reference-quality genome assembly services. We’ve updated the most popular PacBio SMRT Analysis 3.0 tools and structural variant callers (e.g. Parliament) on the DNAnexus Platform.
