Soaking up a little bioinformatics knowledge

At ASHG, we featured a cozy, hip little space called the Illumina Lounge. Located off the noisy exhibition floor, our enclave was decked out with white leather couches, a spread of drinks and snacks, a photo booth, and most importantly, Illumina product experts.

Here, scientists at the meeting who wanted to find out more about Illumina sample prep, sequencing, or data analysis and storage, could have in-depth conversations and get answers to their specific questions. We caught up with Pierre Turpin, bioinformatics product manager, explaining Illumina’s sequencing informatics solutions.
