As a recognized corner- stone for the genomics research community, AGBT pro- vides a forum for exchanging information about the latest advances in DNA sequencing technologies, experimental and analytical approaches for genomic studies, and their myriad applications. The meeting includes daytime plenary sessions featuring invited speakers and abstract-selected talks that highlight cutting-edge research across the broad genomics landscape. Evening concurrent sessions includes experimental and computational approaches for effectively utilizing the latest DNA sequencing technologies. Molecular Med Tri-Con March 10–15, San Francisco Join more than 3,700 drug discovery and development and diagnostic professionals from around the world at the International Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference (Molecu- lar Med Tri-Con) at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Since its debut in 1993, the conference has become one of the world's leading international events in the field of drug discovery, development and diagnostics. Spanning five days, the 2019 Tri-Conference includes talks, including case studies and joint partner presentations, featuring more 500 industry and academic experts discussing themes of cancer research, big data, molecular diagnostics, precision medi- cine, rare diseases, data science, human microbiome, point- of-care diagnostics, and infectious diseases, among others. Industry Events ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition December 1–4, San Diego The American Society of Hematology celebrates its 60th annual meeting this year in San Diego. The premier hema- tology conference worldwide, the event will attract more than 25,000 hematology professionals for every subspe- cialty. Educational opportunities range from large lectures to intimate session such as "How I Treat" where experi- enced practitioners meet with small groups to discuss spe- cific clinical dilemmas via direct and informal discussions. Other conference offerings available on a first-come basis include Scientific Spotlight Sessions that provide 90-minute, in-depth examinations of selected topics; Meet the Scientist, which provides small groups with an interactive discus- sion with scientific experts in specific topics; and Continu- ing Conversations With the Speakers, which are designed to supplement the traditional didactic Q&As for selected scientific sessions. For those new to the hematology field, a trainee segment called ASH-a-Palooza will be held Friday, November 30 at Petco Park from 12:00 to 5:00 pm. There is no fee to attend this afternoon of learning in a "festival-like" setting. Precision Medicine World Congress (PMWC) Silicon Valley January 20–23, Santa Clara, CA After 15 years of steady growth, the 16th annual Precision Medicine World Conference (PMWC) Silicon Valley moves into a new home at the Santa Clara Convention Center. The program reaches across a broad range of innovative tech- nologies, initiatives, and clinical case studies that enable the translation of precision medicine into direct improvements in patient care. Join more than 2,000 attendees spanning the spectrum of healthcare companies, technologies, and clini- cal centers to learn first-hand about the latest developments and advancements in precision medicine and cutting-edge new strategies and solutions that are changing how patients are treated. PMWC features five educational tracks on topics including artificial intelligence and machine learning, and next-generation sequencing, with a lineup of more than 450 speakers. Featured speakers this year include Feng Zhang of The Broad Institute, Sharon Terry of the Genetic Alliance, Janet Napolitano, president of the University of California system and CAR-T therapy pioneer Carl June, M.D., of the University of Pennsylvania.
