Advances in Genome Biology and Technology

If, like us, you were not able to go to sunny, warm Florida last week to the Advances in Genome Biology and Technology conference, well… never fear, that’s what blogging is for :D. Several bloggers who attended have given some interesting and informative overviews and highlights of the conference. Anthony Fejes gave a live blogging blow by blow, Daniel MacArthur of Genetic Future writes about the battle lines being drawn at sequencing companies (and some highlights), Dr. Robison discusses a new company planning to offer $5,000 dollar genomes (but only Human) this year (that $1,000 genome isn’t far away!). So, if you want to know some of the goings on at the conference, those are good places to start. The “Complete Genomics” story seems to be a big one.
