On March 5 of this year, X-Gen Congress & Expo convened in San Diego, CA. 350 participants from 17 countries, and over 200 companies, spent three days networking and discussing the potential of established and emerging genomic technologies. The genomics revolution continues to present the following challenges and opportunities, along with exciting new applications, as well as, case studies, and best practices. Each program at X-Gen Congress & Expo 2012 featured 100 presentations and discussions offering different views and perspectives on poignant issues that the field currently faces, while also able to facilitate networking opportunities and peer collaborations.

Thank you to all of our speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors for your support and contribution, and to all the delegates for your participation.  The success of this event is largely due to the dedicated participants that return with us year after year.

We look forward to seeing you again next year. SAVE THE DATE - MARCH 18 - 21, 2013.
