We’re delighted to share with you the announcement of our Genomics Symposium San Diego 2017 — designed for scientists who want to learn more about the possibilities of acoustic liquid dispensing in genomics. Featuring guest speakers Rob Knight (University of California, San Diego), J. Colin Cox (Genentech), Rebecca Lee-Lu (Dow AgroSciences), Michael Smanski (University of Minnesota), and Lily Fitzgerald (Ginkgo Bioworks), our event titled, “Miniaturize, Accelerate and Maximize Your Research,” will be held at the Estancia La Jolla Resort on Thursday, March 23, 10:00 AM – 8:30 PM.

We identified key applications — microbiome sequencing, synthetic biology, and gene editing — in which the Echo acoustic liquid handling technology is enabling scientists to make significant inroads — and we invited leaders in those fields to share details about their work.
