Chris Whelan shared our work on non-invasive prenatal sequencing using cell-free DNA at the Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) meeting in Hollywood, Florida in a flash talk and poster presentation. The conference brings together leading users and developers of the latest technologies in genomics, from both academia and industry. He had some great conversations at his poster, on subjects ranging from new technologies for prenatal cell-free DNA sequencing to the potential impact on precision medicine of implementing prenatal sequencing at large scale. He returned home from the meeting with lots of new ideas and inspiration!”
