Golden Helix’s Virtual 2020 Conference Booth

         October 27, 2020

In lieu of conferences making the absolutely necessary decision to cancel this year’s conference, we created our Virtual 2020 Conference Booth! Even though it will never compare to the real deal, we hope you enjoy this blog post containing a few events we had planned this year.

To start, let us paint the picture with some of our favorite conference memories of 2019:

Attend one of our quick, in-booth demos!

Seasoned conference attendees know by now that you don’t want to leave the conference without attending one of our in-booth demos.

Each year we ask our community to share their puniest ideas for our t-shirt design competition and reveal the winning designs at the ASHG conference. Attendees can catch one of our in-booth demos, and afterward, we reward you with one of our infamous t-shirts! We had to get creative to continue the fun in this COVID world…

First and foremost, we are excited to reveal the winning 2020 Designs with you all!

First Place: Michaela Lucas, The Pennsylvania State University.

Second Place: Katie McElhinney, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital

Third Place: Mark Bieberich, Private

Our Field Application Scientist Team has put together a variety of demos that we will be inviting you to view for a chance to win one of these awesome t-shirts! Here’s how it works:

  • Watch one, a few, or all of the demos below
  • Tag us in a post on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn stating you attended the demo for a chance to win one of our t-shirts
  • Tag a colleague who might benefit from watching the demo for an extra entry per account you tag
  • We will be drawing 4 winners per day for the duration of the ASHG 2020 virtual conference
  • Winners will be announced the following day at 9:00 AM MST

Grab a Free eBook

Another must-grab was a copy of our latest eBook “Cyber Security Strategies for NGS Testing Labs” released earlier this year by Golden Helix President and CEO, Andreas Scherer, Ph.D. In this eBook, Dr. Scherer reviews historic data breaches and discusses common cyber threats. This is mainly to explain the complexity we are dealing with both from a software vendor perspective and from a customer point of view implementing a state-of-the-art diagnostic pipeline. Moreover, he reviews how Golden Helix is able to provide a solution that can be utilized entirely internet independent behind a firewall.

Chat With Our Technical Team

We can all agree one of the best parts of a conference is getting to network with new and familiar faces. Obviously, this virtual booth cannot accommodate this, but we would still love to talk with anyone interested in learning more about Golden Helix software or seeing a more personalized demonstration. If you are interested in chatting with our team, please email us at and we will be happy to arrange this!

We hope you enjoyed this short blog with some of the events we had planned for our 2020 conferences. Our thoughts are with everyone during this time of uncertainty. We are very much looking forward to doing all of this with you in person in 2021.
