The Pilgrimage to Marco Island


It’s February on the calendar and it is pretty cold here in the Mid-Atlantic so that means it must be time for our annual trek to Marco Island, FL for the AGBT meeting. The conference is a highlight on an increasingly crowded meeting calendar in the genomics community. This will be the 14th installment of the AGBT Meeting and I am happy to say I have been to all except for the very first one. The meeting organizer, Rita Dunton of G Corp, has done an amazing job over the years of keeping everyone happy while running a top-flight scientific retreat. This year the organizers implemented a new registration system to try and make sure industry, academic, and government had equal representation after the registration the two previous years was sold-out within the first ten minutes of being open.
