In 2020, Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) will mark its 20th anniversary. AGBT convenes one of the world’s most revered genome science and technology conferences, bringing together top global researchers, leaders, and innovators. The next AGBT General Meeting will be held February 23-26, 2020, in Marco Island, Florida.
“We are honored to be joined by so many great minds each year, but our 20th anniversary is particularly special,” said Richard Wilson, founding Executive Director of the Institute for Genomic Medicine at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, and a Co-Founder of AGBT.
“Building on the astounding advancements since our inaugural meeting, we remain laser focused on cutting-edge genome sequencing and analysis technology to discover clues that will lead to more effective diagnosis and treatment of disease.” Wilson added, “In recognition of 20 years of AGBT, we are bringing together pioneering legends from the Human Genome Project as well as innovators and trailblazers currently at the forefront of this life-changing, life-saving work.”
