Building a designer yeast genome from scratch? Producing flavors, fragrances, and enzymes through fermentation? Developing microfluidic devices for long-term, single-cell time-lapse microscopy? Deciphering marine microbial mysteries through metagenomics?

Today’s applications of genomics are varied, vast, and fascinating. Many share common challenges, and others encounter new ones as they break new ground in scientific exploration. With the Echo acoustic liquid handling technology and what it enables, genomics research is experiencing a profound transformation in rapid dispensing, reducing sample and reagent volumes; more efficient experimental workflows with reproducible results, and fully integrated robotic solutions.

On Thursday, October 25 (10:00 AM - 8:30 PM), at the Hyatt Regency Cambridge, MA, leading scientists from across the spectrum of genomic science will gather to discuss their work and share their own experiences and laboratory successes.

JOIN US to hear from:

Dr. Leslie Mitchell | Post Doctoral Fellow (Jef Boeke Lab) - New York University Langone Health; Co-founder of Neochromosome; Co-leader of the International Synthetic Yeast Genome Project (Sc2.0) -- who will discuss genome engineering in yeast and efforts to build a designer yeast genome from scratch.

Alicja Gomes | Build Engineer, Ginkgo Bioworks -- who will discuss her work using custom software and highly sophisticated hardware automation to construct thousands of strains of yeast and bacteria, creating better ways to produce flavors, fragrances, and enzymes through fermentation.

Dr. Alka Saxena | Head of Genomics Research at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS and Honorary Senior Research Fellow at King’s College London -- who will discuss single-cell mRNAseq and her investigations into monogenic disorders and basic science using systems biology approaches.

Dr. Xitiz Chamling | Post Doctoral Fellow (Donald Zack Lab) at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine -- who will discuss the use of human pluripotent stem cell-derived oligodendrocytes (OLs) and retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) as models to study OL development, maturation, and mechanisms by which they myelinate CNS neurons, and to establish human RGC- and OL- based drug screening platforms to identify neuroprotective and myelination promoting bioactive molecules.

Dr. Pascaline Mary | Associate Director, and Matthieu Delince | Scientist, at HiFiBiO Therapeutics -- who will discuss their work developing biological assays and technologies using microfluidic tools for academic and industrial applications, most recently single-cell screening to discover the next generation of immunomodulatory antibodies.

Jeremiah Minich | Ph.D. Student (Rob Knight and Eric Allen Labs) at The University of California San Diego’s Scripps Institute of Oceanography -- who will discuss developing methods for high throughput metagenomics of diverse sample types, including low biomass samples, in his quest to decipher marine microbial ecology for applications in aquaculture and fisheries management.
