Genomics by the beach

Abstract

A report on the 35th Annual Lorne Genome Conference 2014 held in Lorne, Victoria, Australia, February 16-18, 2014.
The 35th Annual Lorne Genome Conference attracted scientists from Australia and internationally to the Victorian Surf Coast town of Lorne for three days of genomics by the beach. The diversity of genomics research was showcased across 35 talks, including a session dedicated to young researchers and students, and more than 170 poster presentations. The standard of scientific talks was extremely high in all sessions. However, in summarizing the meeting, we have chosen to focus on presentations that we can relate to most directly and that we found most interesting. Notably, only 15 of 35 talks were from Australian or New Zealand speakers, highlighting the variety of genomics talent, both in delegates and speakers, that remains the staple of the annual Lorne Genome meeting. The summertime setting, 40 meters from a popular beach, did little to dampen the spirits of the delegates.
