Headed to San Diego for PAG XXIV


The holiday season has come to a close and we are headed to sunny San Diego for PAG XXIV! This year, our President and CEO Andreas Scherer along with Greta Linse Peterson our Director of Services and Mary Makris our Operations and Marketing Manger, will be manning the Golden Helix booth, so stop by booth 129 to say “Hi!”.

Since PAG XXIII, we have made quite a few improvements to our SVS software including enhancements to our genomic prediction capabilities and the addition of meta-analysis! We will have some great example workflows ready to show you and afterward, we will be handing out our famous golden helix t-shirts! We will also have hard copies of both our GWAS and Genomic Prediction ebooks to give away.
