Sequencing, Finishing, and Analysis in the Future 2019

Last week, a few of us from the Kading lab traveled to Santa Fe, New Mexico for the 14th Annual Sequencing, Finishing, and Analysis in the Future Meeting put on by Los Alamos National Labs. We learned a lot about new advances in genome sequencing, assembly, and analysis in addition to novel applications of next-generation sequencing. We got lots of ideas of how we could apply some of these concepts to our ongoing projects, and of course, we came up with dozens of additional questions we could possibly answer if we had unlimited time and money 🙂

Rebekah, Erin, and I were excited to see that Dr. Zaid Abdo and his PhD student (a fellow veterinarian!) Steven Lakin were also at the workshop. We got to catch up with them and enjoy some New Mexican cuisine the first night there! (From left: Dr. Steven Lakin, Erin Borland, Dr. Rebekah Kading, Dr. Zaid Abdo, and myself)
