It was a great experience at a splendid conference. The forum provided a basis for fruitful exchange and discussion across both geographical and expertise borders.

The atmosphere was inspiring and the size of the meeting is perfect for networking. I was most impressed of the large SNP multiplexes targeting more than 1400 sites that could be analyzed with the new QIAGEN Gene Reader instrument in only one experiment. Awesome!
