AGBT Meeting Covers Wide Range of Genomics Advances

AGBT 2024 took place in Orlando, FL, in early February. A full debrief from AGBT is critical to understanding where the world of next-generation sequencing (NGS), genomics, and spatial biology is heading. Here, GEN summarizes the highlights that garnered our attention during the meeting.


Vizgen (another company facing lawsuits from 10x Genomics), announced a partnership with Scale Biosciences (a San Diego–based single-cell company) to bring single cell and spatial together. Vizgen also announced that its customers will soon be able to design custom MERFISH (multiplexed error-robust fluorescence in situ hybridization) panels for characterizing the expression of nearly 1,000 genes.
