Testimonials

AGBT is always the most important meeting I attend all year. The cutting edge scientific talks and the networking makes tremendous opportunities possible.

AGBT Attendee

As it was my first time, I now know why AGBT is considered the best genomics meeting in the world…Every aspect of the conference was a highlight. Getting a cross-section of the current trends, the talks, the vendors,  the networking…everything.

AGBT Attendee

I loved speaking to vendors and learning more about their new tech and how it could be applied to my lab…So many engaging talks and new connections.

AGBT Attendee

This was the best conference I have ever attended. The talks were stellar and I really enjoyed the small size relative to the larger meetings I typically attend…it was more personalized and meaningful.

AGBT Precision Health Attendee

The caliber of talks was unrelenting…nothing short of stellar!

AGBT Precision Health Attendee

I enjoyed learning how the rest of the field is thinking about genomic testing (i.e. combining WGS and RNAseq) The scientific content was excellent and I made a lot of new connections. 

AGBT Precision Health Attendee

Very distinguished series of speakers from diverse clinical fields and perspectives with common genomic thread. Best collection of talks I’ve seen at a conference lately.
