The Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) conference has been where the DNA sequencing industry has made major announcements, but 2013 was a relatively quiet year in that respect.
We speak with researchers Deanna Church and Jay Shendure to find out what this means for the future of genomics.
And in our science roundtable, science writers Sarah C.P. Williams and Ashley Yeager discuss AGBT13, sciquester, and our annual Science Grammy award.
