NHGRI Advanced DNA Sequencing Technology Development Meeting, 2015

The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is engaged in a program to develop technologies with which to sequence human(-sized) genomes at high quality and orders of magnitude reduced costs.  Again this year, we invite other members of the research community to a one-day meeting that will be held in conjunction with the program's annual grantee meeting.  

The meeting will be held in San Diego, California, May 14-15, 2015.  It will begin Thursday afternoon and end on Friday afternoon.

We seek the participation of scientists and engineers with solutions to the challenges this program seeks to overcome. We're particularly interested in the participation of those who have different ideas on how to sequence DNA at high quality and very low cost -- for example, using other physical methods.  There will be opportunities for posters and presentations by non-grantee participants.

All attendees must register.  Please register early as space is very limited.  For more information and to register for the meeting, please go to this website: www.regonline.com/2015developmentmeeting

If you have questions about the meeting, please contact Bao-Hanh Ngo at bao-hanh.ngo@nih.gov.

After you have registered for the meeting, you may submit an abstract using the form below. Abstracts are due March 13, 2015.

For your information, a list of active grants is available:
