This week brings a new experience for us: Sage is participating in a virtual conference! For those of you not yet familiar with it, BioConference Live runs several meetings each year, all 100 percent online. Attendees can tune in for excellent talks, meet company representatives in the exhibit hall, and even pick up giveaways — all from the comfort of home or office.
The Genetics and Genomics conference is being held this week, on August 21-22. We’re really impressed with the speakers at this meeting: keynotes include luminaries George Church, Drew Endy, Mike Snyder, and David Baker. There are also several tracks to choose from in the two-day meeting, such as bioinformatics and quantitative genomics; clinical genomics; epidemiology and population genetics; synthetic and systems biology; and more.
Unlike an in-person conference, you can tune in for just the sessions that interest you, without anyone noticing when you duck out. There’s no travel involved, no need to dress up, and best of all, registration is free. You can sign up here.
Sage Science will have a booth in the exhibit hall, where we’d be happy to meet you and answer any questions about how automated DNA size selection could improve your sequencing workflow. (That sounds strange for a virtual event, but there will be real, live people behind those avatars, ready to chat.) You can find us by searching for “Sage” in the exhibit hall or by looking for our fancy blue booth.
We hope to see you there!
