AGBT 2016 Full Schedule is here

Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) Meeting,  one of the most anticipated genomics meetings’ full schedule is available now. This year’s main AGBT conference is from 10th February to 13th February, at JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes Orlando, Florida. (Notice the venue change just for this year).  Starting from this year, AGBT has two meetings one in Florida –  AGBT  General and the second AGBT conference on precision genomics (in Arizona this Fall).

Just about a month to go, AGBT has announced the full schedule for this year’s AGBT general meeting. Visit AGBT site to see the full schedule. Tried to select some interesting talks to look forward to this year and ended up selecting most of the talks here. Here you go.
