AGBT 2013 Highlights: Link Roundup

The 14th annual Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT 2013 #AGBT13) meeting held in Marco Island, Florida is over today after four days of all things genomics. Unlike the last few editions, there was not high expectation this year, but almost everyone expected to see more evidence of genome sequencing making big inroads into clinics.

Here is a link round up of happenings at AGBT 2013 from the people who attended and brave enough to blog about on the same day.
