Join Us at PAG 2016 for an NGS and Genotyping Workshop

This year’s 24th annual International Plant and Animal Genome meeting in San Diego gives us more than a welcome break from winter: PAG is the premier event for agbio researchers, and we always enjoy getting a chance to see old friends and meet new ones. The conference is known for top-notch science on everything from model organisms to the rarest creatures.

This year’s meeting, taking place January 9th to 13th at the Town and Country Hotel, will find the Kapa team in booth 107. We hope you’ll stop by to say hello and tell us about your research.

We’ll also be hosting a workshop on January 11th at 12:50 pm in the Royal Palm Salon 1-2. “Next-Generation Sequencing and Genotyping Solutions for Plant Genomics” will feature three terrific speakers sharing their experience in areas of great interest to this community:

  •  Jean-Philippe Pichon, Plant Engineering Platform coordinator, Biogemma

Topic: Development of a high-throughput method for the screening of a maize mutant collection

  • Ek Han Tan, Plant Biology and Genomics Postdoctoral associate, University of California, Davis

Topic: Dissecting genome dosage, structure, and function by whole genome sequencing

  • Heather Whitehorn, Support and Application Scientist, Kapa Biosystems

Topic: Optimization of crude sample qPCR with KAPA PROBE FORCE

We hope to see you in San Diego!
