Come say hello to us at booth #432 to see how we can help you with all your sequencing needs.
At our Dinner Workshop
Our educational workshop will inspire you with new BGISEQ-500 NGS technology applied to chromosome-level genome assembly and with recent plant and animal research presented by leaders in the field.
You will learn how transcriptomics enables new discovery to advance basic research and application in crops and how a novel molecular tool can increase protein content and disease resistance in crops. Another talk will demonstrate how genetic variation can contribute to rapid evolution of polygenic traits in honey bees.
Examples of Recent NGS-Enabled Plant and Animal Research: New Technology, Tools and Findings.
Monday, January 15, 6:20PM – 8:30PM
Appetizers and beverages will be provided.
