Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT)

February 27, 2019 - March 2, 2019

AGBT Advances in Genome Biology and Technology

The Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) General Meeting will be held Feb 27 – Mar 2, 2019 on Marco Island, Florida.

AGBT provides a forum for exchanging information about the latest advances in DNA sequencing technologies, experimental and analytical approaches for genomic studies, and their myriad applications.

Highlighted presentation topics include:

  • Heterochromatin and genome evolution
  • Historical pathogen population genomics using selective genome enrichment to identify non-classical drug resistance mechanisms
  • Identity inference of genomic data using long-range familial searches
  • Transcript expression-aware annotation increases power for rare variant discovery in Mendelian and complex disease
  • Characterization of splicing diversity and gene fusions through Nanopore sequencing
  • Single cell-RNA-seq identifies a unique microglia type associate with Alzheimer’s disease
  • Spatial mapping of host-microbiome interactions in the gut
  • Assembly of long error-prone reads using repeat graphs
  • Isoform sequencing in tissues, cell types and thousands of cells
  • From here to Mars: How the Twins Study and the year-long ISS mission have moved us closer to the red planet
  • Cell atlases as road maps to human disease
  • A rigorous study of the need for Sanger confirmation in clinical genetic testing
