AGBT Meeting – RNA-Seq Sessions


The 15th annual Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) meeting will be held in Marco Island, Florida, on February 12-15, 2014. 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 and their myriad applications.

Please plan to join us in Marco Island for the 2014 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.
