  3. YUSUKE GOTO, HITACHI LTD., Research & Development Group “Solid-state Nanopore DNA sequencing: Single-nucleotide discrimination and bidirectional DNA translocation”
  4. CHRISTOPHER WHELAN, Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research, Broad Institute “Exploring 50 whole genomes with linked read technology”
  5. DEANNA CHURCH, 10X Genomics “More complete genome analysis”
  6. CHRISTINA FAN, BD “Application of high throughput single cell transcriptomics for analysis of rare populations present in bronchoalveolar lavage samples”
  7. DANIEL NEAFSEY, Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard “A community effort using multiple technologies to produce a dramatically improved genome assembly of the Zika virus mosquito vector”
