Festival of Genomics

You came, you saw and you sequenced ....


The Festival came to San Diego with a bang! It was bigger and better than last year

The Festival of Genomics almost doubled in size with 35% increase in attendance

The atmosphere was buzzing, the show floor was packed, meetings and collaborations were even more exciting, you could really see the excitement in people's faces....we loved every minute of it

Thank you to all who contributed to the success.
