  • 2011 AGBT thread!

    I'm sitting in the airport about to board a plane to Florida for AGBT and realized we didn't yet have a way to collect all the comments, live blogs, pics, etc that will undoubtedly start flowing in soon as the conference starts tomorrow afternoon!

    So consider this an open thread for all things AGBT related! I will also be posting to the @SEQanswers twitter account, with hashtags #AGBT and/or #AGBT2011, so you can stay in touch that way as well.

    So the conference is in full swing, I'm sitting dead center under one of the screens taking notes and following twitter as best I can with this terrible wifi.

    If you're new to twitter...search for the hashtag "#AGBT", and you may want to add "-RT" to prevent seeing all the duplicate retweets.

      This is a link to the search I mentioned above:

        It's been a great 5 days...I'm heading to the airport in about an hour. If you haven't already, make sure to check out Anthony's (apfejes) blog for detailed notes on most of the sessions:

          I'm going to TRY to use Twitter. I've failed the other times I've tried to keep using it, but it is pretty cool.

          Gotta say though, I honestly don't feel like I missed much by not being at AGBT. What do you think? Seemed like the same people from academia plus typical company announcements (e.g. LifeTech is doing better and better, IonTorrent looks good, PacBio is settling into its niche, CGI is doing very well, everyone and their brothers are using Illumina).

          Maybe it's just because the weather in the Bay Area has been incredible the past week.

            You are right this year there were not big announcements. There were some memorable talks (Rob Knight comes to my mind). But, as usual, the best of AGBT is the networking and being able to hang out with such a interesting (and crazy) people.

              I used twitter to follow AGBT and feel I didn't miss much. That is, regarding the talks. Of course I missed out on the networking part...

                But what if the best talks were the untweetable ones?
