ABRF 2009

Application and Optimization of Existing and Emerging Biotechnologies

Please join us at the ABRF 2009 meeting that will be held February 7-10, 2009 in Memphis, Tennessee.

The ABRF 2009 meeting will present the latest developments in life sciences technologies and the use of these technologies as shared research resources.  Leaders in the field will give presentations.  There will be scientific sessions and technical workshops on genomics, proteomics, imaging, and other technologies, including next generation sequencing, genotyping, microarrays, real-time PCR, proteomics and mass spectrometry, protein production, optical imaging, bioinformatics and bio-IT.  The meeting will include scientific research poster sessions and a core facility poster session.  Participants will be able to interact with an outstanding array of vendors in the exhibit hall and in exhibitor workshops.  Satellite educational workshops held before the main conference will cover next generation sequencing and proteomics technologies.  Tours will be given of core facilities at nearby institutions.  There will be numerous opportunities to network with colleagues, including an opening reception and a closing social.

We look forward to seeing you at the ABRF 2009 meeting!
