Catch Microbiome Insights at #ASHG17 and enter our draw to win 50 complimentary samples for amplicon sequencing

The microbiome is often called the ‘second genome’ — and the researchers attending the American Society of Human Genetics 2017 meeting (ASHG 2017) could benefit from the opportunity to round out their studies, combining genetics/genomics with microbiome analysis. From October 17th to 21st, Microbiome Insights will be at ASHG 2017 (Booth 328) talking about the benefits of incorporating microbiome analysis into genetics and genomics work.

If you find us there, you can enter your card into our draw — the winner will be able to submit 50 samples for complimentary amplicon sequencing.
