Roche Sequencing Solutions is excited to welcome you to the Festival of Genomics at the Boston Convention Center from June 27th - 29th. Come by booth #232 to learn what we have in store for an end-to-end NGS workflow, from sample prep to informatics analysis.
After a successful Festival of Genomics meeting in California last November, we're excited to be attending FoG London next week. Need an efficient, scalable and accurate NGS analysis workflow to extract insight from your genomic datasets? Come by booth #50 to test drive Bina's secondary and tertiary NGS informatics software, and talk to us about ways to better organize, mine and share your results.
For those who missed our panel discussion in the "Enabling Genomics Data" track at the Festival of Genomics San Mateo last month, you can now catch the webcast replay on demand.
Did you miss out on the Festival of Genomics California this month, or was at the conference but didn’t make it to the “Enabling Genomic Data” session? We are excited to bring a broadcast of our panel discussion on “Genomics data - Challenges and opportunities” to you next Tuesday, December 1st at 9am PT // 12 noon ET // 5pm GMT.
Thanks to CRISPR, we are now entering a new era of genome engineering. Not that long ago, I spent a couple of years as part of my graduate thesis work engineering a mouse with a gene altered so that it would not make any insulin-like growth factor binding protein 6 (IGFBP6). In fact, my fellow graduate students in the lab and a post-doc were each assigned to knock out a different member of the IGFBP family in order to understand the role this family of proteins played in growth, development, endocrinology, and more. Now, studies that had been considered too labor-intensive to run are possible with genome engineering techniques that can achieve a throughput, time-to-result and precision that were previously unattainable. Today, with CRISPR, a single graduate student may be assigned to the task of knocking out a whole set of genes in order to create each null. It was no surprise that Genome Editing was a popular track to attend at the Festival of Genomics conference which took place in the San Francisco Bay Area early this month.
In just a few days, the Bina team will be out in San Mateo to welcome you to the Festival of Genomics California. We are looking forward to meeting you at booth #37 to discuss the latest trends in genomic data analysis.
The Festival of Genomics in Boston a few weeks ago consisted of two days of presentations with over 100 speakers and 4 parallel tracks. I found myself torn between the choices of talks to attend.
Richard Lumb, Founder and CEO of FrontLine Genomics, inaugurated the first Festival of Genomics conference two weeks ago in Boston by articulating his company’s vision to bring genomics to the masses sooner. He and his team sought to offer a lineup of speakers and events to do their part to advance the field. I, for one, enjoyed partaking in a conference that is not only among the most focused in genomics, but also one that has sought to add an element of fun as you may have guessed from the ‘Festival’ in the conference name.
Bina and Roche Sequencing welcome you to the inaugural Festival of Genomics! Come by booth #25 to test drive our secondary and tertiary NGS informatics software and discuss ways to analyze and manage your genomic datasets.
